It’s funny how even the most nationalistic of British bands at some point succumb to the temptation of Americana and all its red, white and blue trappings. The Arctic Monkeys are the latest to follow suit.

But in their latest video for “One for the Road,” Alex Turner and the gang give their take on Americana an ironic twist. In it the band get dressed to the nines in designer duds while hanging out on a farm. Guitarist Jamie Cook even cruises through the dusty fields atop a big-wheeled tractor wearing none other than a three-piece suit.

The black and white clip was directed by Focus Creeps, who’s worked with the Arctic Monkeys in the past, coming up with the clip for their 2011 song, “Suck It and See.”

The video cranks up the rock ‘n’ roll quotient considerably towards the song’s climax, with the band taking to its instruments amidst a gaggle of leggy models, farm equipment and plumes of fireworks.

The Arctic Monkeys are currently on tour in Europe, but return to North America before the end of the year.
