Hi! Sorry I don’t have a clue where the gif is from, I’d saved it from tumblr. It might be from a vine? Does anyone else know?
No, I don’t think there are any specific songs about her because I think it was still pretty early into their relationship when he wrote those songs. Perhaps she inspired more of the ‘romantic’ lyrics although they are pretty rare as even Miles and Alex said in an interview before that the songs sounded like they were about a serial heartbreaker. I think Alexa had more of an influence on songs by Arctic Monkeys (on Humbug, Suck It And See and AM). Although I thought it was really sweet how she was in the My Mistakes Were Made For You video. :-) x
I would love to say that it’s definitely about Alexa because some of the lyrics such as ‘interstellar-gator skin boots’ ‘that’s magic in a cheetah print coat’ ‘arabella’s got a seventies head’ and ‘asking if i can have one of those organic cigarettes that she smokes’ seem very much inspired by her. However it’s probably more likely to be about Arielle as she is Alex’s current girlfriend, although knowing Alex these lyrics could just as easily be about some made up person or situation or some abstract metaphor. Thank you! x

' “I'm not heartbroken any more, but I definitely was when I wrote it (last year),” she says hastily.
Who caused the heartbreak?
"It was various people. There was one big thing, and then there were various ill-advised flings I had to get over him, so yeah," she replies.
"Him", as all Alexa fans know, is Alex Turner, lead singer of Arctic Monkeys and Chung’s boyfriend for four years until their split in 2011. ‘
