The Strokes are back with strange clip

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from The Strokes but the band sure knows how to make a (re-)appearance! Threat of Joy is the new single off their latest EP, Future Present Past, which was released earlier this month.

If the song reminds you of the usual ‘Strokes sound’, the clip is surely bound to surprise you. From pig-masked men to members of the SWAT team, this is one freaky music video. I don’t know why one would go through so much trouble for a film reel, but who am I to judge?

All kidnapping and ‘video within a video’ aside, though, what really took me by surprise was frontman Julian Casablancas’ clothes! I mean, when was the last time he dressed so brightly? This might, indeed, be a new, crazier era for The Strokes…
