Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys

It feels like it was ages ago that we watched these four teenagers with dishevelled hair and crooked smiles take to the stage. It was 2006 and nothing could have prepared us for the sucker punch genius of their first album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, an incredible concentrated essence of adolescence, energy rock and spoken word, all with a Sheffield accent. Barely old enough to vote, the Arctic Monkeys became instant hits, inspiring others and every new album was a triumph. In recent years, they’ve swapped the Sheffield streets for the Los Angeles sunshine. Rumour has it that in the summer of 2021 they recorded their seventh album in England… While we wait to find out if it’s true you can count on their presence at Rock en Seine next summer.
