The first full song from Angles, “Under Cover Of Darkness,” received reviews that nearly unanimously decreed it “a very good Strokes song.” And then reviewers wondered if that was a red herring of a first impression, or a harbinger of the “return to form” that so many people seem to be craving. If yesterday’s LP in 30 second snippets didn’t make things clear, “You’re So Right” should help: At least on this track, this is the Strokes sounding like not-the-Strokes. This is the Strokes sounding something like These New Puritans. (Which should suit NME just fine.) Darker then, yes, Julian’s drone/moan employed in a somewhat different direction. See how it fits:
Speaking of NME, you can head there to hear the track should that stream above come down.
