Single Review – The Last Shadow Puppets – Aviation

‘Aviation’ is the third single to emerge from The Last Shadow Puppets’ upcoming second studio album Bad Habits . The first two have either been underwhelming or simply poor and so there’s perhaps an unusual environment of pressure surrounding this third single. It is indeed an improvement on the first two singles as it pursues its 1960’s imagery and sound with resonant, rotating riffs and smooth string sections. This song hasn’t moved in a direction of any significance for the duo, but the song builds to tangible progressions and is well delivered and arranged. Still… Don’t expect this album to blow you away from what we’ve heard so far.
