Submarine is the debut EP by Arctic Monkeys lead singer, Alex Turner. It was released on 18 March 2011 in the United Kingdom. The EP consists of six original songs by Alex Turner from the film Submarine and is released by Domino. Submarine, the debut film from Richard Ayoade, was based on the novel by Joe Dunthorne.[7]

Music[edit]

Original songs were written and performed by Turner, with additional instrumentation by James Ford. In his first effort as a solo artist, Turner changed his habitual rock style and delivers five different acoustic songs. The song "Piledriver Waltz" was later re-recorded by Turner's band Arctic Monkeys, for their fourth album Suck It and See.
