From the music to the threads, The Last Shadow Puppets have always had a fascination with the ’60s. The band took its love for that era to the next level during their performance on Later … with Jools Holland last night, as frontman Alex Turner offered up his best Elvis Presley croon on “Sweet Dreams, TN”.
Suave and impassioned (and the slicked back hair helped, too), their performance felt like a charming blast to the past when the word “loungey” had a much, much better connotation. The King would approve.
“Sweet Dreams, TN” is off the group’s sophomore album, Everything You’ve Come to Expect.
