Yes, I’d go as far to say this is their best video of them all, not just from their recent EP, Future Present Past.
Video aside, ‘Threat of Joy’ also stands as the one song closest to the garage-rock Strokes we fell in love with after Is This It was released in 2001.
It hints at some sort of world domination heist that sees SWAT teams, spies and money moguls pinned against each other. God knows how The Strokes get involved, but true to form, they seem pretty mundane about the whole experience. Film buff Albert Hammond Jr. must’ve been on board in some shape or form.
For us, ‘You Only Live Once’ comes in at a close 2nd, with ‘Juicebox’ rounding out the top three.
