Sort of like the Strokes took over my music selection for a month not long ago, sort of like that Franz Ferdinand is starting to take over an already crowded genre/style selection.
They sound like the Strokes, and they play like the Strokes. The only thing that matters though is this: their songs are every bit as good as those of the NYC band.
Too bad we won’t get a chance to see them live any time soon. Coachella will be missing them (The Strokes did play there on their breakout year) and they don’t show up on the US tour lists yet. Let’s hope that changes soon.
