Video of the Moment #680: Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys‘ next single is the dessert-titled ‘Black Treacle’, out the 23rd of November on Domino on 7″ and digital formats. It was directed in Sheffield and Los Angeles by Focus Creeps, who says of the video:

The ‘Black Treacle’ video is a compilation of the darker outtakes of ‘Suck It and See’. In the desert, the bright rays of the sun cast a long dark shadow. It’s a prequel where laws get broke, and a sequel where hearts get broke. On the one hand, the song kind of says, now matter how low things go, you can always dream, and on the other hand it’s a video that kind of shows: kids, don’t try this at home.
