The Truth About Music

"What's hot, what's not, and whats next in pop music"

Music Video of the Week: "Crying Lightning," by Arctic Monkeys

On the eve of their latest albums release I checked out their video for the first single. My first opinion of the song; Arctic goes emo. Regardless I continued watching the video and really enjoyed it. It was very dark, very twisted and oddly comforting all at the same time.

The the band performing on a boat in the middle of some rough seas they just keep performing despite the inclement whether that surrounds them. I won’t ruin what happens at the end but it was a pretty creative way to shoot a music video although I can’t garuntee that old school Monkeys fans will enjoy the song itself. Either way check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
