Light and airy, filmic but intimate, carefully arranged but deceptively power-ful, "Suck It and See" is Arctic Monkeys' fourth album. Recorded at Sound City Studios in Los Angeles with long-time producer/ collaborator James Ford, it has a summery pop feel: with the bulk of work completed on the West Coast during January, it's got the feel-good sound of stealing some winter sun, some out of season Vitamin D.
'Everyone was in a really good mood when we were there,' says Alex Turner; 'so I think the fact we were having a laugh comes across. When I've played it to friends they've said "it sounds like you're having a really good time", I think we wanted it to sound quite fun and up, not too serious'.
