The Strokes: One Way Trigger

The rumor was true: New York rock n' rollers, The Strokes have been working on their upcoming full length album since their last release of  Angles in 2011. They surprised fans with a sudden release of a single, One Way Trigger last Friday via SoundCloud. 

As a diehard Strokes fan, I got a mixed feeling about this new song: I don't hate it, but don't love it either. Despite the catchy 80's synth pop melody and their signature guitar jams , it caught me off guard with Julian Cassablancas' high pitched vocal. It took me a few listen to get used to the vocal and realizing it is actually Cassablancas' voice. (I am fond of his husky unique voice) What's your thought? Yay or Nay???   It is interesting to see where the quintet is heading to. We shall find out with their new release.
