America has left its mark on Arctic Monkeys.
Initially an insular, profoundly local phenomenon, the band have shifted past this. Spending large amounts of their time in the United States, Arctic Monkeys have fused their identity with the impact of those long trips across the Mid West.
New album 'AM' was recorded Stateside, and for their new video the Sheffield band return to the American wastes. 'One For The Road' is a definite album highlight, and already a firm fixture in Arctic Monkeys' live set.
For the video, Arctic Monkeys have paired up with Focus Creeps. Shot in monochrome, the clip opens with Alex Turner driving a tractor before the band descend on an abandoned barn.
There are definite nods towards David Lynch, both in the atmosphere and the setting at rural Americana throws up a few more chills.
Watch it now.
