Arctic Monkeys - 'On A Mission (Katy B cover)'
They make this track their own
Turner and co take on the might of Katy B, transporting ‘On A Mission’ from its grit-Brit foundations into a badlands-inspired rag-around. It wouldn’t sound out of place on a Ennio Morricone soundtrack, which is doubly weird considering they even manage to shoehorn the riff from ’60s standard ‘Shakin’ All Over’ in there at one point.
