similar sounds: arctic monkeys v. sondre lerche

the arctic monkeys’ “teddy picker,” off of 2007’s favourite worst nightmare, came up on shuffle today.  i was inspired to start a new feature on this blog called “similar sounds” to chronicle the many thought processes i go through that are just like what i’m about to tell you.

i love alex turner’s voice. probably one of my favorites. ever.

i don’t know if it’s because i don’t listen to this particular song very often or what, but i was suddenly struck by how much his voice sounds like sondre lerche’s.

i mean, think about phantom punch, sondre’s “hardest” and most rock-y album to date. with all the percussion in the background, they’re eerily similar. maybe i’m losing my mind, but what do you think??

first, “teddy pickers” by the arctic monkeys

and sondre’s “the tape.”

weird, right?!?
