The Strokes are back with a follow up to the top ten hit ’12:51′ and their very successful album ‘Room On Fire’. ‘Reptilia’ is a tense, garage rock floor-filler in their own inimitable style. Casablanca?s distinctive rasping vocals and the jangle of guitars become infectious on what is one of the best tracks from the album. Also on the single, but sadly not the promo, is a brand new track ‘Modern Girls & Old Fashioned Men”; which sees The Strokes team up with fellow New Yorker, and regular of the antifolk scene, Regina Spektor.
