‘Do Me A Favour’ is the definition of slow-burning. It’s moody and majestic, and it’s wonderfully unleashed. A brilliant highlight of a brilliant record.

And it’s a strange beast in that it showcases brilliantly contrasting facets of Turner. It’s a cross between a crestfallen narrator, mourning the state of his break-up, and the guitar-wielding boy who’s not quite over it, wanting to let the anger out of his system. It’s both intricate in its bass and guitar hooks and simple in that it only glides across a few chords. And it’s a gentle, simple song, and yet it’s roof-raising towards the end; the surge of distortion is a typical Monkeys trick, but to play that card quite so soon after Alex’s wistful almost-acappella section is the sign of a fearless band in full control of their sound.

‘Do Me A Favour’ was written by a 20-year-old. Yes, really.
