Way Out West 2018 - Emma Viola LiljaArcticMonkeys-25

Stripped back, laid back and primed for yet another show of a lifetime, Arctic Moneys took the stage at Gothenburg’s Way Out West last night to close the first day of the Swedish festival. Avoiding the careful teasing of new tracks before rolling out the indie anthems, the Sheffield natives launched straight into what can be best described as a set of greatest hits. The carefully pinpointed rollout of fan favourites displaying that although fans may have turned their nose at Tranquillity Base Hotel And Casino, live the band are still a force to be reckoned with.
