“My Propeller” (Video)


    Arctic Monkeys aren’t finished with their third album yet, despite rumors that a fourth is already in the works. The latest video to be put together for a Humbug track is “My Propeller,” which is a basic performance clip with a few visual effects thrown in that look like the kind of thing that emerges when you hit the “visualizer” button on iTunes.


    The song demonstrates how the band doesn’t always play everything at breakneck speed, perhaps indicating a maturity in Arctic Monkeys’ sound. Unlike much of Humbug, this one wasn’t recorded out in the desert with Queens of the Stone Age mainman Josh Homme, but actually manages to make the perfect soundtrack to a trip out to the Joshua Tree anyway.
