A bit of a cheat here, considering it’s one of those super-bands which occasionally crop up here and there. This is The Last Shadow Puppets – the collaboration between Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner and Miles Kane from The Rascals – with their latest single Aviation.
It’s a nice melodic, brooding piece of indie rock – sounding kind of like a good cross between Richard Ashcroft and Cast, (but nowhere near as pretentiously wanky as the former and not as musically limited as the latter). That may not sound like the best description on first glance, but take a listen and tell me you can’t hear either echoes of John Power’s nasal drawl or Ashcroft’s Song for Lovers in here.
Still, it’s a good little tune. Looking forward to hearing what these guys come up with in their next full-length album.
