In a certain sense a lot of the music that influences us is pop music. So I always admire people who write good catchy pop songs and I think The Strokes are a great example of that. I think a lot of bands copied them in bad ways and made worse versions of it. But yeah, The Strokes… It’s almost incredible how good a mind they have for writing pop songs. -Ezra Koenig, 2008

Behind the scenes video of the making of Contra: Ezra Koenig

"I’ve been thinking a lot about the tour and I’m getting lots of inspirations and writing new songs and I had one idea for a title, ‘California English’, something like “bounced across a Saudi satellite dish, through your brain to California English”. I thought that was kind of witty.”
