The Strokes – “All The Time” Video

The Strokes’ new single “All The Time” sounds like an old Strokes song, with its urgently metronomic rhythm and its excellently rumpled Julian Casablancas mutter-wail. And the video seems bent on reminding us who, exactly, the Strokes once were and on pounding home the idea that these are still the same guys. The clip edits together old footage of different stages of the Strokes’ career — van trips, video tapings, playing with Lou Reed — and edits out that whole extended-hiatus thing. Then it shows them gearing up for a festival show together, apparently best friends again. I hope that’s exactly what they are, but I’m not sure a video is enough to convince me. Watch it below.

The Strokes’ new album Comedown Machine is out 3/26 on RCA.
