The Strokes broke the Internet earlier today when they released the first single from their upcoming album Angles on their website, which still isn’t functioning quite as it should. Because I’m a generous and loving person, thought I’d upload it for your listening pleasures here. “Under Cover of Darkness” finds the Strokes seemingly trying to recapture some of that Is This It magic, complete with bouncy guitar chords and Julian Casablancas’ ever-present cold. Angles is slated for release on March 21.

God, I wish they had more variety, because they really can write catchy as fuck guitar lines.

Am I the only person that can't get into this band at all?

I wouldn't turn this down at a party, something I'd say of any Strokes song. But this band does nothing for me in a setting that doesn't include drunk girls

fake edit I just wrote "nude girls" instead lol

brandnewAAAA
02.10.11
Song's not bad at all. Just two months and 2011 is already looking better than last year.

Pretty good song. There will be better ones on this album though for sure...

MUNGOLOID

good song.

Swingfinger
02.13.11
The chorus is a bit too boring to compare to any of their old stuff... it sounds more like Julian's solo CD. Still like the song though.

zoso33

loving the solo and of course that epic breakdown that lasts almost not long enough. plus anyone else think julian's voice is getting better?

telebyrd
02.19.11
He quit drinking, the vocals should be on point. Otherwise, get back on the jack!

Superbus
02.19.11
pretty poppy, but ridiculously catchy. Could be a summer album?

morte
02.20.11
aside from a couple of songs, i wasn't that into these guys. but this is pretty catchy.
