On Friday, The Strokes will release their first full-length LP in over seven years with The New Abnormal. The group’s return has been highlighted by a number of memorable live performances, first during their New Year’s Eve headlining performance at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center where they debuted a new track, “Ode to the Mets”. Then came their appearance at Senator Bernie Sanders’ New Hampshire Presidential rally performing their hit “New York City Cops” while actual cops tried to shut down the set. Today, Julian Casablancas and company premiere “Brooklyn Bridge To Chorus.”
The track follows the “Bad Decisions” music video and “At the Door” and takes a turn to some synth-pop sonics reminiscent of the 1980s. Vibrant keys lay the foundation for the song breaks down into some more traditional Strokes’ instrumentation near the chorus. Casablancas delves into the fight to stop drinking, references the disappearance of ’80’s bands while paying tribute to them with the song’s undeniable sound and wishing for some new friends.
Listen to “Brooklyn Bridge To Chorus” below and stay tuned for more from the legendary band later this week. In more music news, Stones Throw Records artist John Caroll Kirby dropped his latest instrumental album Conflict over the weekend.
