VIDEO: Arctic Monkeys “Brick by Brick”

Posted March 4th, 2011 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

The first taste of Arctic Monkeys’ fourth LP has surfaced. With the album not due out until summer, the band seems to be getting a head start here. This first single, “Brick by Brick,” is yet another departure for the Sheffield quartet. After throwing fans for a loop on Humbug, their Josh Homme-produced exploration of psychedelic hard rock back in 2009, the boys have opted here for a much more melodic track. The verse starts out with a bit of a penchant for glam but quickly resolves into a Beatles-esque set of harmonies, which honestly kind of recall Definitely Maybe-era Oasis.
