Who knew The Strokes wrote a song called YOLO?
Inspired by 80’s pop and modern indie rock, the duo covered The Strokes’ piece “You Only Live Once” to great success. The song opens with some non-distinct synth noises over a wind recording that slowly starts to form into a subtle background melody. Once the bass line kicks in and LYON starts singing, you have no choice but to keep listening.
My personal favorite part is the chorus, when a GLORIOUS chord progression pops in along with WOLF SAGA himself to accompany LYON.
I am butchering this review and doing this song no justice. If you are still reading, props to you.
