First Listen: Do I Wanna Know by Arctic Monkeys

After last year’s almost-year-topping lone single, R U Mine, I’ve been well excited for new Arctic Monkeys material. Suck It And See was a grower; initially it seemed to lack anything interesting but eventually the true quality (of the latter half, especially) shone through. Do I Wanna Know continues their recent trends of:

  • colloquial, questioning titles
  • fitting ‘summat’ into every song
  • travelling further down the road of guitar-focused rock

Stomping almost as much as Tame Impala’s Elephant, the new track is certainly a far better first single than Suck It And See’s Brick By Brick, which was arguably the weakest track on that album.
