So, in case you hadn’t noticed, yesterday the Strokes released the first single off their “don’t call it a comeback” album, “Angles”, titled “Under Cover of Darkness”.
And hell if it isn’t nice to hear these cats again. “Under Cover of Darkness” is their first tune in over 5 years, and it’s a welcome return, with a decidedly upbeat, off-kilter feel, and an absolutely kickass chorus refrain melody.
You can download “Under Cover of Darkness” for free from the Strokes website (free in return for an email, and – less inviting – mobile number), or you can stream the full thing below.
“Angles” from The Strokes is out March, 2011.
