Arctic Monkeys - Suck It And See
'Suck It And See' is the title track and third single to be released from Arctic Monkeys fourth album which was released in June and entered at Number One in the UK album charts earlier this year. The single is the best taken from the album so far, truly demonstrating that Arctic Monkeys really have grown up sounding more melodic and mature, while still retaining an aspect of their boyish innocence with Turner’s touching, personal lyrics "you're rarer than a can of Dandelion and Burdock and those other girls are just postmix lemonade".
Drummer Matt Helders takes the starring role in the video which tells the story of an interesting relationship on a lost weekend. You’ll never look at Helders in the same light again after watching! Although some fans may complain that Arctic Monkeys have changed their sound drastically, 'Suck It And See' is catchy and will undoubtedly be played on radio stations and indie clubs throughout the country for a long while and who knows – it might even morph into the 'Mardy Bum' of 'Suck It And See'.
