They’ve come a long way since 2001, and in the new video for single “Under Cover of Darkness”, the Strokes decided to chronicle it symbolically. From the obvious throw of a mic stand (“Last Nite”), to the less noticable nods to certain members absences and side projects, the song takes a back seat to the band’s history lesson. Thankfully, it all ends in smiles for a band that seem to be back and stronger than ever.
The entire clip ultimately serves as a fan service to the legions of admirers that have been patiently waiting for new material since 2006. It’s been a long time, but the wait just got easier. Check it out HERE!
