The Brit Pack: British Musicians
#5: The Arctic Monkeys
The Arctic Monkeys are an English indie rock band, formed in 2002 in the suburbs of Sheffield.
Their first album released in 2006 “Whatever People Say I am, That’s What I’m Not,” was the first to become the fastest-selling debut album in British music history. From thereon, the band went on to release two more albums, including “Favourite Worst Nightmare” in 2007 and “Humbug” in 2009. Their fourth album “Suck It and See” will be released in early June 2011.
Here are some of their awesome tracks:

I think Alex Turner is a handsome devil XD.
I haven’t entirely abandoned my British Musician sets yet. I’m just...a bit slow. But I’ve discovered so many cool bands ever since my last Brit pack set…:)! I can’t stop listening to XFM.
My favourite song by the Arctic Monkeys is I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor! It was their first single, and I love it coz it’s such an amazing upbeat song. Someone wrote a comment on youtube on their song ‘Perhaps Vampires Are A Bit Strong But...’ and I found it so funny, I have to agree! Thank god Twilight didn’t steal that song.
For some reason I really like their new song, ‘Brick by Brick.’ It sounds so different from their usual music style, I was unsure of it when I heard it coz it doesn’t sound like Alex Turner’s voice, but as I listened to it over and over again, I grew to really like it :) I’m looking forward to their new album.
Have a good day, everyone ^.^
