The Strokes - One Way Trigger

Don’t call it the year of the comebacks. Wait, no, you actually can call it the year of the comebacks; with revivals coming from Destiny’s Child, David Bowie, Black Sabbath and now The Strokes with the release of their brand new single “One Way Trigger.” A synth driven track coupled with some high end falsetto vocals finds the New York rock band in somewhat newer territory that a lot of fans have not responded too positively with; stating that the track bears too much resemblance to “Take on Me,” the 1985 synth-pop hit by Norway’s A-ha. But the lyrics show a side of the band that we’ve come to love in some of their best music, crooning over emotional indecision with lyrics like “You ask me to stay, but there’s a million reasons to leave.” Listen to “One Way Trigger” below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. You can grab a free download of the single here and sing along using the provided lyrics sheet below the SoundCloud embed. Enjoy!
