And finally, because the mix of genres in which the group has accustomed us continues here with a third piece at the pace more languid and appeased, Hand it Over . With this fourth album, the Australians have achieved the perfect synthesis between the trips pop and experiments acids of the previous albums.

The turning point initiated by the group in 2018, is spectacular. Articulated around the piano, the album sees the guitars that have made the reputation of Arctic Monkeys move to the second plan.
