The Strokes are an American indie rock band. Formed in New York City in 1999, the band consists of Julian Casablancas (vocals), Nick Valensi (lead guitar), Albert Hammond Jr. (rhythm guitar), Nikolai Fraiture (bass) and Fabrizio Moretti (drums)
“Machu Picchu” by The Strokes is the first track from their fourth studio album, Angles, released on March 18, 2011 in Australia; March 21, 2011 in the UK; and March 22, 2011 worldwide. It’s their first album since First Impressions of Earth in 2006.
Although the song received loads of airplay here in the UK, it seems it was only released as a single in France, where it reached the sunny climbs of No 87 in the charts…….bloody criminal!
