the fact that band members are just walking down the street right now or are at the grocery store and the people around them dont know who they are just makes me
How long before I get in Before it starts before I begin? How long before you decide Before I know what it feels like? Where to, where do I go? If you never try then you'll never know How long do I have to climb Up on the side of this mountain of mine?
In a certain sense a lot of the music that influences us is pop music. So I always admire people who write good catchy pop songs and I think The Strokes are a great example of that. I think a lot of bands copied them in bad ways and made worse versions of it. But yeah, The Strokes… It’s almost incredible how good a mind they have for writing pop songs. -Ezra Koenig, 2008
