One Way Trig­ger

Rough Trade It’s been a mixed week for Strokes fans. The good news: the band fi­nally con­firmed that they are record­ing a fifth al­bum at Elec­tric Lady Stu­dios in New York. How­ever, the first track to emerge from those ses­sions is a syn­th­pop work­out, with falsetto vo­cals, that sounds like noth­ing the band have ever at­tempted be­fore. Sub-AHa fi­asco or stroke of ge­nius? Both! I say! Some­what in­de­ci­sively!
