"I think all this emphasis on sales is misguided. If you look at the Stone Roses or the Jam, you don’t think about how many records they sold but what great music they made. That’s what is.” - Alex Turner.
"I enjoyed doing it, because it was very different from what I do with the group. [The music I wrote for “Submarine”] was stripped-back and allowed to be like that because you had this great film going on in front and had a wonderful energy. It could just be an acoustic guitar and this melody and that coupled with what’s going on in the screen, hopefully, is a good blend." Alex Turner about write songs for ‘Submarine’ soundtrack.
