Earlier today, The Strokes announced the release of their brand new EP Future Present Past, and also shared its three track in consecutive order, being the dynamic “OBLIVIUS,” the deep, sharp “Drag Queen,” and the strong, passionate “Threat of Joy.” The third is definitely the most mellow and reminiscent of The Strokes’ signature sound, although all three are stellar. Juilian Casablancas’ vocals are gorgeously lethargic, contrasting nicely with bright, peppy instrumentals. It is unclear if this will lead to a full-length album in the future, but at least we can take comfort knowing that The Strokes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Future Present Past will be released June 3rd.
