Earlier this year, the duo of Alex Turner, front-man of The Artic Monkeys and Miles Ford, lead singer of The Rascals announced they would be known as The Last Shadow Puppets. Later, in April, The Age of the Understatement, their first album, dropped. Now the side project seems to be soaring to new heights. The British rockers crank out tunes that are reminiscent of their parent bands, as well as classic English pop-rock. Definitely a band to watch for the coming year. The Puppets could be casting shadows of the Fab-Four on the wall with their 4/4 times and easy to grasp melodic adventures. "Standing Next to Me," in it's simplicity, seems to be a modern rendition of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand..." Not to mention the hairdos in this video: Standing Next To Me (official video)
Whatever their intentions for comparison are, the duo is making a spalsh. They were the 2008 MOJO Breakthrough Artist, as well as playing a secret set at this years Glastonbury with the it-man of rock Jack White. We're keeping an eye on these guys. Rumor has it another album is in the works for 2009. Time will tell. -joe puglisi The Last Shadow Puppets on Tour Aug 19 - Guildhall, Portsmouth - Portsmouth Aug 22 - Leeds Festival - Leeds, South Aug 24 - Reading Festival - Reading Aug 26 - Olympia - Paris Oct 15 - Circus, Stockholm - Stockholm Oct 16 - Vega Main Hall - Copenhagen Oct 17 - Tempodrome - Berlin Oct 19 - Cirque Royale - Brussels Oct 20 - Paradiso - Amsterdam Oct 22 - Academy - G5 9NT, Scotland Oct 23 - City Hall - Sheffield Oct 26 - Hammersmith Apollo - London Oct 30 - Grand Ballroom - New York, New York Nov 3 - Mayan Theatre - Los Angeles
