Alex Turner (of that little-known band Arctic Monkeys) has always been hailed as one of the finest lyricists of the 21st century, and for good reason. ‘Submarine’, the EP soundtracking actor and director Richard Ayoade’s new film of the same name, is bursting with the trademark wry observations that made Turner’s name. On ‘Piledriver Waltz’, a late Beatles-esque highlight, he references Elvis Presley’s ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, whilst retaining his sharpness, making this a bittersweet love song. ‘Stuck On The Puzzle’ is a charming piano-led track, with the gritty yet never morbid lyrics providing a delicious contrast. The ‘Submarine’ EP is yet another triumph for Turner, and will only further cement his reputation as a great modern songwriter. ‘Piledriver Waltz’ and ‘Stuck On The Puzzle’ are featured on the ‘Submarine’ EP, available on Domino Records
