Instant response:: Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know

New Arctic Monkeys track ‘Do I Wanna Know’ was released today with first radio play being on XFM’s Jon Holmes breakfast show. It comes as the debut from the band’s fifth album which has been strongly hinted about for quite a while now. The track itself, like the new album Is as promised, much more similar to the Arctic’s heavier work on ‘Humbug’ however I would say it’s strongest resemblance is to record store day single ‘R U Mine’ released in February of last year. It’s driven by a thick industrial drum line that opens it, rousing the desire to pound ones fist along to it, then accompanied by riff work on guitar which is played homophonically alongside it’s sensuously deep bass line it creates a cool, laid back yet still exciting backing for Alex Turner’s vocals to pur smoothly over the top of all of this.
