Not only is their music AMAZING but they have that style that looks so effortlessy cool. Leather jacket, Converses and skinny jeans never looked so good. They are some seriously good looking men too haha (mmm drummer Fabrizio Moretti, guy on the right on second row mmm)
Ever since 2005 I have been eagerly waiting for new Strokes material, so I was EXTREMLY excited when I saw someone post the link to the new album 'Angles' preview a couple of weeks back on Facebook. I was writing an essay in the library, very early morning and I remember letting out a 'squeal' of happiness which gave me a few dodgy looks.
On first listen I was like 'yeh ok this is fairly good, not that 'Strokey' haha. Nothing seemed to really stand out to me at first and I was sort of disappointed, but now a few listens in and I'm hooked. I really like their 'new direction' and listening to it more I can notice the 'Strokiness'...yes I'm making up words...AH I'm in love, defo one of the albums I will play on repeat this summer.
Here are some of my favourite tracks:
Track 4 - You're So Right
Track 5 - Taken For A Fool
Track 6 -Games
Track 9 - Metabolism
Hope you like my favourites, you can hear the rest of the album here: http://new.thestrokes.com/uncategorized/listen-to-angles-here
