Alex Turner and the Submarine EP.

Arctic Monkeys’ frontman Alex Turner recently recorded a solo EP of songs comprising a soundtrack for the upcoming film, Submarine.  The EP recently hit the web, and I…I’m just blown away by Alex’s songs again.

The songs are much more subdued compared to the Monkeys and even moreso than his side project with Miles Kane, The Last Shadow Puppets.  The songs are much closer to fellow Sheffield native, Richard Hawley, than probably anything he has released before.

This is unquestionably my favorite tune off of the EP (just look at my damn Last.FM!), entitled “Hiding Tonight”.

 

Beautifully written and performed. This is the type of music that I inhale and keep coming back for another hit.
