Artic Monkeys – The Artist/s
Arctic Monkeys are an English rock band formed in Sheffield in 2002. The group consists of Alex Turner (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Jamie Cook (guitar, keyboards), Nick O’Malley (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Matt Helders (drums, backing vocals). Former band member Andy Nicholson (bass guitar, backing vocals) left the band in 2006 shortly after their debut album was released. Arctic Monkeys were heralded as one of the first bands to come to public attention via the Internet, with commentators suggesting they represented the possibility of a change in the way in which new bands are promoted and marketed. Their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not (2006), became the fastest-selling debut album in UK chart history, and has been hailed as one of the greatest debut albums. As of 2021, Arctic Monkeys have sold over 20 million records worldwide. In the United Kingdom, the band became the first independent-label band to debut at number one in the UK with their first six albums. The band have won seven Brit Awards; winning Best British Group and British Album of the Year three times; a Mercury Prize for Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, an Ivor Novello Award, and 20 NME Awards.
When The Sun Goes Down – The Song
‘When the Sun Goes Down’ is a song by English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. It was released on 16 January 2006 as the second single from their debut studio album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not (2006). It followed debut single “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” to number one on the UK Singles Chart. The song is about prostitution in the Neepsend district of Sheffield. Originally known as “Scummy”, early reports had also suggested its name would be simply “Sun Goes Down”, but the full name was confirmed on Arctic Monkeys’ website. The song’s lyrics tell a story narrated from the point of view of a concerned individual who is approached by a scantily-clad girl, heavily implied to be a prostitute; he then observes a “scummy man” who has been hanging around the neighbourhood; the man is implied to be either the prostitute’s pimp or a ‘client’ who is picking her up for sex.
The Sunset – The Shape
This vinyl single has been reworked into the silhouette of the setting sun. Sunset, also known as sundown, is the daily disappearance of the Sun below the horizon due to Earth’s rotation. As viewed from everywhere on Earth (except the North and South poles), the equinox Sun sets due west at the moment of both the Spring and Autumn equinox. As viewed from the Northern Hemisphere, the sun sets to the northwest (or not at all) in the Northern hemisphere’s spring and summer, and to the southwest in the autumn and winter; these seasons are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere.
