Does anyone else ever wonder what the fuck happened to the Arctic Monkeys?
Like, I remember being in high school listening to ‘Fluorescent Adolescent’ and ‘I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor’ & thinking like, yeah, I could get behind this band, & I got a poster & I mean look how cute they were! In a strange sort of British way. But also, of course, fairly unremarkable (in the looks department).
& then I stopped paying attention to them for a few years, listened to the singles on the radio but didn’t really know anything about the band, until I got back into the music sometime in 2013- & Jesus fucking Christ.
I’m pretty sure while I wasn’t paying attention for a couple years, Alex Turner got stuck in a time warp and then just suddenly dropped from the sky one day in 2012, a fully formed 50’s style rock god.
