Arctic Monkeys – “Katy On A Mission (Katy B Cover)”
So after bingeing on the Arctic Monkey‘s for the past few months, now even more so after getting tickets to see them on tour with The Black Keys in May, I had to find an excuse to write about them. For those of you who are not aware, they released their newest album Suck It And See last summer and recently performed on the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to promote that album and the aforementioned tour. During the Live Lounge session they covered Katy B‘s “Katy On A Mission” from her 2011 debut album On A Mission. Frontman Alex Turner and the boys absolutely transformed this song from it’s original electronic, dub-step form to sound like one of their own. However, in regards to the original, it’s a really solid track in the first place, it’s just fun to see the way any band can rework a song. Oh one other thing, during BBC Radio 1 interview, Mr. Turner revealed that Arctic would be releasing a new song before they head out on tour so look out for that new track in the coming weeks. Can’t wait.
