The Strokes are back with a new video. Though, unlike their recent spectacle for “Threat of Joy”, this one’s simply a lyric video, one that grooves with some shiny effects and graphics. In some respects, it feels like an homage to Dave Bauman’s time warp in Stanley Kubrick’s timeless sci-fi masterpiece, 2001: a space odyssey. Watch above.
In related news, the New York rockers have announced that they’ll be performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live next Tuesday, July 26th. The appearance follows their previously announced benefit show set to take place the night before at Los Angeles’ historic venue The Wiltern. Proceeds go to raise funds for the area’s homeless.
The band’s latest Future Present Past EP is currently available via Cult.
