Arctic Monkeys release new music video for “Snap Out of It”

2013Albumsof201318.pmvh_arcticmonkeys020

Just in time for their Firefly performance, this Friday at 6:45PM, the Arctic Monkeys have released a new music video for “Snap Out of It,” a song off of their latest album AM. The video features an oddly emotional woman, fresh out of the pool for a swim, watching a video of the band hanging out in the studio. Let’s just say she’s moved in many ways watching the band. Watch the “Snap Out Of It” below.

Tonight’s Concert Picks: CHVRCHES at Union Transfer, City and Colour at The Electric Factory, Sara Lee Guthrie at World Cafe Live, Arctic Monkeys at the Mann Center

CHVRCHESIf you haven’t picked up on it, we’re quite taken by Scottish electonic pop three-piece CHVRCHES. Building buzz and stateside traction earlier this year on the strength of the three-song Recover EP, the band just released its full length debut, The Bones of What You Believe, and it more than delivers on the promise. Imagine hard-hitting dance beats and hooky keyboard samples supporting the narrative lyrics and alluring vocals of frontwoman Lauren Mayberry. It’s a sleek and catchy combination of techno energy and catchy songwriting. The band returns to Union Transfer tonight, and the all-ages show begins at 8:30 p.m. Tickets and information can be found at the XPN concert Calendar.
