Last year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival was stacked with high profile artists like St. Vincent, Paul McCartney, and Metallica. Now, Arctic Monkeys stopped by The Moody Theater to tape an episode of Austin City Limits TV, which has been exclusively released on the web today.
The British rockers performed “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino,” the title track off of their latest album. As you’ll see in the video, the band reworked the track for the ACL Live performance. In addition to a regular film crew, several red jumpsuit-wearing cameramen shot the performance on Ikegami ITC 730a Colour Tube cameras, which gave the performance a nostalgic, vintage-style feel, which is a fitting aesthetic for the song’s lounge-style vibe.
Watch the Arctic Monkeys perform “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino,” which will air on PBS on Saturday, January 19, below.
