Arctic Monkeys 'Four Out Of Five' by Ben Chappell & Aaron Brown
The Arctic Monkeys have stuck their necks out to make their new album Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino a proper concept album. The first video, directed by Ben Chappell and Aaron Brown, is entirely of a conceptual piece with that ambitious plan.
Complex to the point of opaque, multi-layered, visually rich and archly entertaining, Chappell and Brown weave a story in the style of a Seventies Euro-thriller, with Alex Turner as the hotel's enigmatic goateed architect, and also as Alex, leader of the band, leading parallel existences within the grand halls of Castle Howard in Yorkshire.
This marks a reunion of Chappell and Brown, who directed together as Focus Creeps before Chappell departed - with Brown continuing under the old partnership's name - and the result is characteristically supercool, and also insinuating in its level of mystery.
