A fan of Arctic Monkeys from the start, I am loving how they are maturing. This latest instalment in their artistic journey combines a laid back sexy beat with harmonious vocals and entertaining lyrics. This is possibly my favourite track of 2013 so far.
Every time a new era of Arctic Monkeys comes a knocking on the door you know it's gonna be majorly different from the last and equally as good and this 5th era doesn't disappoint. Roll on September 9th!
I admit that I decided to purchase Do I Wanna Know by Artctic Monkeys after it grew on me through multiple listens of the radio station DC101. I humbly understand that other people are going to have different interpretations to the same song, so here goes my modest interpretation (guess). I am guessing that this song appears to be about a man who admits to having feelings for someone that he at first was not sure whether he liked the person in a romantic way. He now knows that he cares about this person and wants to know if the target of their desire feels the same in case they unintentionally kept them waiting too long. Do I Wanna Know grapples with the issue of trying to win back the affections of another who you were unsure how you felt about them and trying to decide if you truly want to know if they mutually feel the same about you. I humbly understand the true meaning to the song might be different from what I am guessing. Do I Wanna Know by Arctic Monkeys is perfect for those who like sentimental indie rock/hard rock/alternative rock songs.
first time I heard this I almost turned it off before the end. slowly but surely it pulled me back in on repeated listens, its such a hypnotic track and a great introduction to the current Arctic Monkeys sound.
I hadn't listened to much of The Arctic Monkeys until recently and have to say that the two songs that really got me interested were 'Do I Wanna Know?' and 'R U Mine?'. Worth a listen and worth buying.
