Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.’s solo EP AHJ was a welcome surprise. The Strokes were always a band where it was hard to see past the frontman, but Hammond steps out nicely and the video for “Carnal Cruise” is another reminder. The video simply shows him singing to the camera while walking through colorful smoke, but he’s so charismatic that it works. Watch below.
AHJ is out now via Cult Records.
