Single Review by Mark Bayross
Having been given an early boost over the Internet and then played ad infinitum over the PAs at this summer’s Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK, the time has come for Sheffield four piece Arctic Monkeys’ first single on Domino Recordings.
A manic collision of choppy guitars and Northern swagger, if you’ve not yet heard it, I can guarantee you soon will. B-side BIGGER BOYS AND STOLEN SWEETHEARTS is a more philosophical bittersweet tale of losing your girl to a bigger lad, the more sensitive yin to the aggro yang of before.
Given its popularity before it’s even released, I think we can safely assume this will be a hit.
