Watch British alt-rockers Arctic Monkeys perform a mellowed-out rendition of "Mad Sounds," a track from their latest LP, AM. The album version is laid back to begin with, but this stripped down recording features only the vocal line and a clean, crisp guitar. The video has a suave elegance about it, cutting back and forth between the actual recording and what appears to be rehearsal footage. The candid video footage and the placid nature of the song itself, together, create an intimate energy--almost as if frontman Alex Turner is serenading you, personally.
Check out the Spotify album stream of AM to hear some more tracks from the recently-released album. If you'd like to see these sleek Englishmen play live, go to the Arctic Monkeys' Zumic artist page for their tour schedule. PS--I highly recommend watching the band's official video for "Do I Wanna Know?," another great song from AM.
