Albert Hammond Senior, the father of the band’s guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr., comments on the record:
Albert says that the stuff they’re doing is incredible. They’re doing it themselves with their friend, engineer and producer. He just says ‘Dad, it’s incredible’.
He was also asked if it would sound different from “Angles“. His response was,
I don’t think they’ll go in a wildly different direction. Obviously the songs will be different, but I think The Strokes are The Strokes; they always will be The Strokes.
