Single Review – Albert Hammond Jr. – Losing Touch

The Strokes guitarist is set to release his third studio album at the end of July to follow on from his 2013 EP AHJ. That EP didn’t offer up much of a shift from the traditional Strokes sound, unlike the very different routes taken by lead singer Julian Casablancas with his 2010 and 2014 albums and in some ways this dictated the Stokes direction. His third album will be called Momentary Masters and one single from this is ‘Losing Touch’. It very much remains in that zone of a Strokes-like circa 2001-2003 and there’s little evidence of him moving from his comfort zone, but there is a more fluctuating production from the clear riffs and bass in the verses and a more spread out sound later in the chorus. It’s still a rhythmic, sing-a-long event so it’s still worth a listen especially if you’re harking for some Strokes nostalgia.
