Putting emotion in to rock music is an art which Alex Turner has nearly mastered. The heavy drums and ongoing bass line paired with Turner’s change in vocal tone create a very raw feel. Although the meaning behind the lyrics is unclear, Turner’s delivery of them is stellar. The break in his voice the last time he sings the word “hate” packs a punch of raw emotion. This track is definitely one of my favourites off of Humbug.
