Music // The Strokes – Under Cover Of Darkness


The Strokes are back! With brand new single ‘Under Cover Of Darkness’, the song premiered on Zane Lowe’s Hottest record in the world segment last night on Radio 1 and is available for 48 hours as a download only on the bands official site (

It shows a return to ‘Room On Fire’ era Strokes and is seemingly a realigning of the bands strengths after mixed reviews of First Impressions of Earth. This is classic Strokes, spiky and sharp guitars, fast paced, yet simple drums that drive the song at a steady pace, topped off with Julian’s drawn out vocals and unique delivery.

The bands new album ‘Angles’ will be out March 22nd and you can download it for free for the next 48 hours from the bands site. But if you miss it, wait till Record Store Day on April 16th where it will be released as a ltd 7″ vinyl.
