The Arctic Monkeys' "Arabella" stands out as a creeper on an album full of creepers, a Black Sabbath-worshipping head-banger that also inspires pelvic thrusts. Now, the 2014 BRIT Awards' biggest winners have paired their latest AM single with an appropriately risqué music video. Directed by Jake Nava, the black-and-white clip depicts a seedy, smoke-filled party: flashes of female nudity, shots of motorcycles, and a devilishly hammy performance from consummate showman (and SPIN Interview subject) Alex Turner, who looks pleased to be off of the farm, and into the gutter. Watch the "Arabella" video above.
