The Strokes' 'Drag Queen' lyric video goes live from the '80s

Posted on


What kind of videos would The Strokes have created in 1984? Something like the lyrics video for “Drag Queen,” perhaps.

Released on Friday, and featuring animation by Kidmograh (aka Gustavo Torres), the “Drag Queen” clip often recalls TRON or a cut scene from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. “Drag Queen” is one of three new Strokes tracks the band birthed into the world last week, part of an EP called Future Present Past. Other new songs from the band include “OBLIVIUS” and “Threat of Joy.” The EP also includes a fourth track, a remix of “OBLIVIUS” by band member Fabrizio Moretti.

Watch “Drag Queen” below.
