“The Age of The Understatement" is a collaboration between Alex Turner – with whom you’ll be familiar – and Miles Kane, frontman of upcoming Wirral-based group The Rascals. Firm friends ever since Arctic Monkeys toured with Kane’s previous group, The Little Flames, the pair, now calling themselves The Last Shadow Puppets, were so inspired by listening to Scott Walker, early Bowie and David Axelrod amongst others – ‘it was dramatic’, Turner says’ ‘it filled the senses’ - that they hatched a plan. The result is an album of 12 full-blooded songs, bold and brassy, full of drama, wit and melody, that source the past but avoid falling into pastiche. Both Alex Turner and Miles Kane are 22, and this is a youthful record, full of life and the sheer pleasure of music making: ‘it’s not a chore, it’s enjoyment,’ Kane says, ‘it’s great finding that with someone else, a dead good friend’.
