It’s cliche to call The Strokes cool at this point, but Albert Hammond Jr. doesn’t care.
Albert told Q Magazine “Angles” is a very cool record in a recent interview and, to cement his seriousness about the claim, dropped a couple f-bombs.
“I don’t think fans will be disappointed. It sounds like a modern Strokes.“We’ve been doing this for 10 years now and we all understand ourselves a bit better. This record is testament to our instinct and survival.
“F**k, it’s the coolest thing I’ve heard in a long time.”
“Making this album had moments of great frustration. Julian was away finishing his stuff, there was a lot of back and forth. But there were also moments of utter joy.
“That’s The Strokes’ chemistry. For some reason when these five crazy motherf***ers come together with all their frustrations it manages to create something really unique that people groove on. I’m really proud of this album, it’s an explosion of wonderment.”
