i guess the only band close to the iconic revolutionary and unique nature the beatles have is the Arctic Monkeys. They're all extremely talented, largely self taught and have strong lyrics and performances. My only issue is their fame etc like they've gotten big but they they're no where near that of the Beatles. Like 1D or 5SOS may have fame and admitted talent, but they're not all that new. AM took something old and made it theirs, similar to the Beatles but also mostly BECAUSE of the Beatles!
I very much like AM and I love that they are influenced by The Beatles so much too…I think they’re taking that influence and making it their and it just comes out brilliantly.
As a Beatles fan since 1963, don’t see the comparison. When you consider AM have been going 3 years longer than the Beatles did, their music is very genre driven and way less expansive and boundary breaking than the Beatles, and I’m at a loss to name any of the current music scene they have influenced heavily. Decent band but that’s as far as it goes for me…
