Arctic Monkeys “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair” Video

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Today the Arctic Monkeys released some psychedelic visuals for the band’s single which premiered this past Monday on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. Like any number of DIY found-footage videos, “Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair” reinforces the idea that (for the most part) once you’ve seen one trippy acid-dream video you’ve seen them all. All things considered however, that ultimately does little to take away from the highly concentraded track. (Sidebar: When it comes time, I’d like to personally nominate “Do the macarena in the Devil’s lair” as the most nonsensical lyric of the year.) The band’s forthcoming album Suck It and See will be released June 6 via Domino.
