Riff: The Strokes – “Partners in Crime”

Mar 27, 2013

Oh well, leaving your tears alone/Run down your face/And escapes

from Partners in Crime lyrics by The Strokes

Finally showing some character, team Hammond, Jr. and Valensi battle on the keys and guitar like somebody whispered an Is This It? aside, Casablancas swinging his sentiments all soul-punk monsterish around a foreseeable dance floor, narrating a conniving tale about beautifully misfit lovers; [LISTEN].
