The Wait Is Finally Over For Arctic Monkey Fans

Arctic Monkey’s new album “The Car” out now


By Sarah Christenson

The Arctic Monkeys are known for being an English indie rock band. They released their new album “The Car” on Oct. 21, 2022. The genre is alternative/ indie. The album consists of three singles and a total of 10 songs. If you are looking for a more slow-moving album, this is for you. The car was written by the lead singer, Alex Turner, and produced by James Ford.

The album starts off with their single, “I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am.” I recommend this track for when you are doing homework or are just relaxing in your room. Alex Turner takes the lead in the music video with his electric guitar and vocals. “Blank expressions invite me to suspect. I ain’t quite where I think I am”, Alex Turner sings. There are some really funky instrumentals throughout the track. According to, “I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am” has 56.3k views as of Oct. 21, 2022.

Next up, “Sculptures Of Anything Goes” creates a dark tone. It starts off with a low, dark, tune and base. This track is something you would hear in a movie where the main character is going through something. The main character may be walking down an ill-lit ally at night with dark emotions whirling in their head. It makes you feel like you are the main character. You can feel the notes flow through your body.

“The Car” sounds like it would be in the end credits of a film. It plays out as if someone has been through a long journey. It could be in a scene of a cowboy who rides into the sunset. “No, it ain’t a holiday until you go up to fetch somethin’ from the car”, the lyrics claim at the end of the track.

If you are looking for a lighter song, “Mr. Schwartz” is for you. “Come here and kiss me now before it gets too cute”, Turner vocalizes. A guitar opens up the song while being delicately plucked.

This album might not be for everyone. If you are into more hyped-up music I would recommend looking for something else. This album will put you in your feels if you are into a slower-paced track. It brings back an older feel to the music. It is something that you don’t hear too often these days.
