So it’s been ten years since The Strokes released their classic Is This It. Since then they’ve slowly began to lose some steam with Room On Fire and then First Impressions Of Earth. Well, their new single “Under Cover of Darkess” from their fourth long player Angles was released today. You can go to their website www.thestrokes.com sign up and get a free download. And my first impressions of this new single is that their trying to get that groove back. That whole “classic” “rock n’ roll” they were giving us during their celebrity youth. A combination of old and cool new retro that everyone ate up. It tasted great and till this day is quite appetizing. But something’s lacking. It’s got that pop to it but seems to be lacking… cool. I’m not sure. It’s still a solid track. We’ll see how this plays out with the rest of their album. For now, give it a listen. Let it soak in.
