Almost certain this song samples the "Revenge" Minecraft Parody after hearing the synths at the start

Julian Casablancas loves synths that much

I dont care if it isnt "strokesy", Its the freakin Strokes man !!!
Julian's voice sounds amazing, the synths aren't too overpowering, that chorus is AWESOME.
At The Door, The Adults are Talking, Ode to the Mets...YES

Amazing

One of the best Strokes songs imo. It’s so simplistic yet plays to the strengths of the band so well. It’s so... transcendent.

edit: now I'm addicted to the song and I just watched the clip and I'm in love with the song and the clip, whatever, now this is an 84

is this Strokes? for real? I don't know what to say about the synth except that is freaking amazing!!! vocals are incredible fine too! the song is good and creative but I felt something on the 2nd listen... seems it's like an intro for a song that last 5 minutes, like, the song don't grow anyway and ends abruptly, idk... but it's good anyway

I think I can't ... read more

NEW STROKES YESSSS!!!

So this is quite different, though I doubt it will be the sound of the new record. The instrumental is quite minimal with a synthesizer, gentle guitar plucks and Julian on vocals. It kinda gives Jules breathing room, though, because they are fucking incredible on this cut, especially in the chorus! The lyrics aren’t anything to write home about, though.

EDIT: The lyrics are growing on me

This is... Wow. Not what I expected, but I am all for it. This song is beautifully carried by Julian and a wonderfully catchy synth lead. I am incredibly excited for the new Strokes album. Wowee!

I'm so happy that I love this single. It's not the "Strokesiest" sounding track, with the synths, and with a lack of presence from most of the band. I was kind of expecting the rest of the band to jump in near the end, which doesn't happen, but I really don't think it needed to. Even without it sounding like your average Strokes song, the synths are strong enough to carry the full tune, and it is looking like a promising return for the band.

Is incredible how these guys fucked up so much everything that they've made since Is This It.

I use these single reviews with no rating to be a bit more informal, so let me just say... This shit slaps and I can't fucking wait for the album

I love Julian’s voice in this single. It works so well. Simplistic, yet a powerful song from the band. Amazing.

Gonna take this as an opportunity to review all 3 songs we have heard from the album

At The Door: 9/10 - obviously not classic strokes which I love but Julian is amazing on this. I love how it changes to guitars after he sings struck me like a chord. I was unsure of what the album was going to be at first but this made me super excited

Ode to the Mets: 9/10 - the best song we've heard from them since Threat of Joy? Or even Under Cover of Darkness. Love this.

The Adults are Talking: - 7/10 - ... read more

I'm hooked. Unique and well done. Many aren't going to like it and that is fine. They seem to be going a different direction with their music overall. We'll see what the final product is but I am convinced this is may be some of their best work yet.

I think the drummer and the "rest" of the inactive members of The Strokes were proud of their work xD

Reminds me a bit of the sound Julian did with Voidz on Virtue.
Really chill and floaty synths .
Not the everyday "The Strokes" but it's still ear candy.

I was hoping they'd go for a different sound with their newer material and they did just that with a Synthpop/Art Pop track. If this is any preview of what the album is gonna sound like, I got my wish! This has me excited for the new album coming out on my birthday!

Can't say i'm too crazy about this track atm. It'll probably grow on me once I listen to it as part of the entire album. I'm not surprised with this synth-heavy, less rock-oriented direction as it seemed to be where they were headed since the early 2010s. Not saying this direction is a bad thing, but I would love to see what more they can do with it when the album comes around.

Honestly, one of the most pleasant surprises of the year for me. I didn't think it was incredible or anything, but it definitely exceeded my expectations. For context, the Strokes are not a band I really have ever been impressed by: Is This It disappointed me heavily given its massive reputation and everything after that didn't really correct the issues I had with that album (even the Voidz, Casablancas's side project, just didn't do it for me). When I saw this single was getting pretty good ... read more

I've never been crazy about The Strokes. I've tried all of their albums and while Is This It is the closest I've come to really enjoying a Strokes project, I still don't really love it, I appreciate it more than I outright enjoy listening to it. Then again, I haven't listened to it in a while so I may enjoy it more now. But this track really stopped me in my tracks, really taking everything I found mildly obnoxious about the band and really getting rid of it, while also subverting my ... read more
