It’s been nearly 5 years since The Strokes released an album, and about 7 or 8 since I really listened to them. When they first released Is This It back in 2001 it was all I listened to for a summer. Their sound was reminiscent of a time gone by but was new and exciting in a way that only they could create. Cut to now with the release of their new album Angles on March 18, and well, their sound doesn’t sound so different, but maybe that’s not a bad thing.
This is the first video for the single Under Cover of Darkness, a nice little song that sounds like a return to their younger selves. The video isn’t really anything remarkable but the song is quite promising to what will hopefully be a really exciting album.
