The Last Shadow Puppets are cranking up the machine in anticipation of the release of their second LP Everything You’ve Come To Expect. With a name (partially) inspired by Matt Helders, it’s fair to say we’re big fans of Alex Turner and Miles Kane. The countdown to the new album has been a tad tortuous for myself, and I’ve been so busy otherwise I completely missed that the group had released two singles since we first laid ears on “Bad Habits”.
“Aviation” features that familiar seasoning found on The Age Of The Understatement, including a faint whiff of strings similar to those found on the song of the same title. The nearly four-minute jaunt is pretty delightful, and the video features a shaven Miles Kane and impressively coiffed Alex Turner digging what I presume is their own graves on the beach next to the ocean.
