The Technicolors: Reptilia

One day after their riveting new single “Impostor!” released, The Technicolors return (or, lead singer Brennan Smiley does) with a powerful rendition of The Strokes’ “Reptilia.” Accompanied by the Atlas String Quartet—who deliver elegant, emotionally-charged instrumentation—Smiley works his way through the lyrics in a way both respectful to Julian Casablancas’ original delivery but distinctly his own. The Technicolors release new LP Metaphysical on 7 July.
