Well, here are a couple of surprises! For one thing: The Strokes have a new song! For another: It does not sound like any goddam Strokes song I’ve ever heard! The track, entitled “One Way Trigger,” marries the band’s blase hedonism to a weirdly dinky synthpop hook and gives Julian Casablancas a chance to do some falsetto wailing. There’s a particularly ornery Albert Hammond, Jr. solo in there, too. Stream it below.
