The duo's Luke Steele claims the success of the French electro duo's 'Random Access Memories' is down to marketing rather than their musicianship and his new album 'Ice On The Dune', released in June, will make a more lasting impression.

Empire of the Sun star Luke Steele paddled out into the middle of an ocean in the dead of night hoping he would be eaten by sharks after a furious bust-up with bandmate Nick Littlemore.
The notoriously volatile pair was recording tracks for new album Ice on the Dune when Steele caught his collaborator bad-mouthing him to their manager in an online phone call.

Recommended Albums... New York garage-rock new-wavers The Strokes are on album number five and Comedown Machine marks a return to form for Julian Casablancas & co. Whilst they may not be trying to replicate the pared down sound of their now-iconic debut This Is It, they have at least re-captured some of that raw energy. With a sound now owing as much to 80s synth bands such as A-Ha and Human League as it does to their beloved garage rock idols.
As a result, The Strokes, circa 2013 finds the band fully rejuvenated and seemingly enjoying themselves. They may struggle to regain the popularity that they enjoyed when the band first emerged but they have at least done themselves proud with Comedown Machine.
