Arctic Monkeys Stay NSFW in ‘Evil Twin’ Video

Last month, Arctic Monkeys released the video for the title track from their fourth album, Suck It and See, which stars drummer (and Diddy BFF) Matt Helders as a gun-toting biker guy with a girlfriend who has a penchant for undressing. The recent SPIN cover stars return to what look like outtakes from that effort in the just-unveiled video for new song “Evil Twin,” which will appear as the B-side to the “Suck It and See” U.K. single (due out on October 31).

The song sees Arctic Monkeys in the fuzzy, groove-oriented mode that recalls their previous work with Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, while the video itself — again directed by Neon Indian, Morning Benders, and Girls associates Focus Creeps — has more of Helders’ evil twin, and a bit more of his lady pal than some employers might like to see. “Your love’s not what I need / So don’t give it to me,” frontman Alex Turner warns. Too bad Helders didn’t tell that to a certain young woman — y’know, before the whole biker-gang thing.
