“I like The Strokes. 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

Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it… A song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed… that one song stays the same, just like that moment.
