Domino Records have just put up the video for the Arctic Monkeys' new single, Leave Before The Lights Come On on YouTube. It's an amazing, dark and powerful video for one of the band's murkiest songs to date. It stars Paddy Considine and Kate Ashfield and only features a cameo from one band member towards the end. I particularly like this about the Arctic Monkeys - they write songs with characters, each one is like a short story. And so they make videos which are like short films, as gritty as their subject matters. I won't say any more, but I implore you to give the video a viewing. In case you missed them, my photos from their June gig in Berlin can be seen here.
im pretending youre not gone!
