Guitarist of The Strokes, Nick Valensi, has this week performed live on James Cordon’s Late Late Show with side-project, CRX.

The somewhat unknown quantity of Valensi’s project, CRX, was unleashed upon an unknowing American audience.

Whilst the audience had knew as little about CRX as the rest of us, the reception for the band seemed as warm as ever.

Of course, the case with CRX, is the same as The Strokes, anything Valensi touches turns into sonic gold.

You can watch the live performance of their single, ‘Broken Bones’, below:

The band is made up of five musicians – including Valensi on guitar.

CRX’s line-up includes none other than The Dose drummer Ralph Alexander, Guards and Willowz guitarist Richie James Follin, LA musician Darian Zahedi, and The Reflections member Jon Safley.

The band first came to our attention back in August after their introduction was made online, before playing their first live shows.

UK dates are said to be in the works for the band, which for fans of The Strokes, which there are plenty of over here, is fantastic news.

Never fear, though, it would appear that new material from The Strokes is on the horizon, in an interview, Valensi said: “We are slowly but surely working on an album,” he said. “I don’t know when it’s going to be released, we’re kind of just in writing sessions. We’re writing.”

Valensi added “I’m actually in New York at the moment, at a studio in New York for that”.

Valensi had previously told NME that The Strokes had plans to release new music “next year”. He continued: “If I start saying a lot now, people get too excited. Then there’s all this hype you’ve got to compete with, and that’s not fun. If anything, I’d rather just pull a Beyoncé at some point next year and just drop shit.”
