"Whenever we get sent free clothes and that, there’s always something you pull out of the box and think, ‘Nobody is going to wear that.’ And every time, Helders comes in and, straightaway, he goes, ‘I’ll have that.’"

A lot of people thought the Arctic Monkeys were a fad, and the band themselves told us not to believe the hype. So imagine the surprise you’d spring on the 2006 doubters, if you declared this: the Arctics’ fifth album is not just as good as their first, it ensures they’re a band that will go down in history as one of the finest from our fair shores.
The man at the centre of it all, Alexander David Turner, is a fitting lead character for such a tale; a shy outsider of a teen turned glamorous rockstar, but still the very same man who’s always been motivated to get out of bed (or into bed, as ‘AM’ suggests) by the poetry of what goes on around him. He’s a prolific force completely unparalleled by anyone else his age, and if I was a 14-year-old getting into music in 2013, Arctic Monkeys would (still) be the band to capture my imagination."

"I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because ‘romantic’ doesn’t mean ‘sugary.’ It’s dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can’t attain."

"When I’m alone I think of so many things to say to you, but when I have a chance to tell you, I go speechless."

"Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back. That’s part of what it means to be alive. But inside our heads - at least that’s where I imagine it - there’s a little room where we store those memories. A room like the stacks in this library. And to understand the workings of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We have to dust things off every once in awhile, let in fresh air, change the water in the flower vases. In other words, you’ll live forever in your own private library."
