In an interview with Vulture, Casablancas spoke about how his songwriting and has changed over time, both musically and lyrically:

“With the Voidz, we have such large-ranging interests and we like to see our ideas through in a musically interesting way. We all like things from jazz to hip-hop to metal. My long-term goal was to have a situation musically where I could focus on lyrics and harmony — I don’t really write drumbeats anymore because [drummer] Alex [Carapetis] is so next level. I’m still a little bit involved in some solos, but not so much, whereas back in the day I was writing the solos. And harmonically now the things I’m interested in are basically quarter-tone.”

The same discussion also saw The Strokes rocker make some controversial comments regarding the way “cultural brainwashing” has led to Ed Sheeran’s popularity.
