The Strokes: Drag Queen

In a surprise move last week, NYC indie-rockers The Strokes dropped not one but all three songs off their brand new Future Present Past EP—at roughly the same time via three different radio shows. Each track pushes the band’s signature sound in new directions but “Drag Queen” jostles and jangles along with such force it warrants further attention. There’s definitely an essence of Joy Division tossed in the mix, but lead singer Julian Casablancas’ drawl-to-howl vocals make it a beast all its own. The band performs tomorrow at Port Chester, NY and will be headlining Governors Ball this weekend.
