For most, The Strokes probably don’t inspire thoughts of bright, infectious dance tunes. But that’s exactly what comes to mind when listening to “11th Dimension,” Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’s first single off of his upcoming album Phrazes for the Young. The upbeat single opens with irreverent synths and playful keyboards. While The Strokes are grounded in cynicism and reality, Casablancas is clearly a romantic, counting himself among the dreamers: “Oh I got music, coming outta my hands and feet and kisses / That is how it once was done / All the dreamers on the run.” It’s already evident that Casablancas intends on veering his solo pursuit into another “dimension.”
