Track of the day: The Strokes – Under Cover of Darkness

by | 10th, February 2011

Aah yes, The Strokes. The band, whose debut album was championed by everyone from Noel Gallagher to Kate Moss and whose dirty guitar riffs and whiney vocals inspired a generation of new bands, are back.

And that probably won’t mean too much given that their second album – Room On Fire – was a real stinker and the third First Impressions of Earth only marginally better.

However Under Cover of Darkness, their first single in five years, is a real return to form. All the bits that made them so lovable in the first place are there but bizarrely they have jumbled around in a song that contains about three choruses and eight mini guitar solos.

If this is anything to go by their fourth album could be a corker.
