they are like the strokes in the sense that they became popular online and off a couple singles before they dropped an album. that and because they are an indie band from nyc, not so much that their sounds are alike. they dont sound anything like the strokes.
saw them live last night in denver at the bluebird. they sounded
really crisp and they have a good stage presence. usually when newer
bands start touring their sound quality is not dialed in, but this was
an exception. they played a few new songs too which i thought were
pretty dope. overall i thought it was a really good show.

sorry, not what I meant to say
I don't like them, and they don't sound that fresh TO ME. There are 3 bands that live within 10 miles of me that sound like them.
But that might be because there are a bunch of indie/alternative bands around seattle. I'm not into their sound I guess.
