Alex Turner had a huge impact on people from the 2000’s. He and his group Arctic Monkey’s did a fair job of introducing people to a new culture that no other band has been able to recreate up until writing this article. They still hold their coveted place in the music industry.
When asked about why he doesn’t join Social Media like other entertainers, he respectfully declined the possibility and said he was better off without it. He didn’t criticize anyone for spending time on the social media platforms.
The interview happened with Alternative Press, and he was clear about what makes his group good, and why there’s always a need to grow in the current day and age. Arctic Monkeys’ early success was rooted in the power of MySpace, so it might be surprising to learn that Turner doesn’t hold a single social media account.
I’m not ruling it out! There aren’t enough hours in the day! And this is not a criticism of anyone at all… I just don’t know how I would be able to do a good job.
After striking up a friendship with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, Arctic Monkeys took a darker turn on their sound, shaping it with stoner rock and psychedelia elements, leading to what can be considered as the last rock album to have mainstream appeal, 2013’s “AM”.
They’re all over the place when I think about them now. It’s fast and everything is just done really quickly and kind of reaching all over the place to figure out where it’s going.
The group continued to experiment with the jazz-influenced “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino”, which alienated a big chunk of their fanbase, but frontman Alex Turner doesn’t seem to hold any regrets. The newest album of the group “The Car”has released yesterday, October 21, and you can check out the single “I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am” below:
