Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not
Arctic Monkeys are an English rock band formed in Sheffield in 2002. The band have usually been categorised under the indie rock, garage rock, psychedelic rock, and post-punk revival genres. A key part of their sound, and one that translates across their whole discography, is lead singer and frontman Alex Turner’s intricate and often rapidly delivered lyrics, sung in a distinctive strong Sheffield accent that their music became famed for in their early years. A large part of their iconic British sound is credited to the punk poet John Cooper Clarke. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not is their debut studio album, released on 23 January 2006. The album became the fastest selling debut album in British music history, shifting over 360,000 copies in its first week, and it has since gone 6× Platinum in the UK. Since its release the album has received universal acclaim and has been hailed as a modern classic.
