Arctic Monkeys - 'Electricity'

An ode to night-time nookie

Photo Gallery: Arctic Monkeys

Alex Turner ain’t in the mood for romance in this gnarled ode to night-time nookie. “My heart was breaking and got left unlocked/Didn’t see you sneak in but I’m glad you stopped” goes his barely-there murmur. Made available for Record Store Day as a B-side to ‘R U Mine?', ‘Electricity’ continues the Monkeys’ flirtation with QOTSA riffs and sleaze.
