After the release of their 2005 debut album, Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?, the Like became known for sugary pop-punk, but over the last five years, they've radically overhauled their sound. With the help of producer Mark Ronson and the Dap-Kings, the group's new disc Release Me is a throwback to classic '50s groups like the Shangri-Las, with charmingly girly harmonies and Phil Spector-inspired production. Still, the Like have hung on to their punk-y roots: tough-as-nails tracks like "Release Me" show these ladies aren't afraid to step all over a dude's heart. The band recently dropped by the Rolling Stone offices to play stripped-back versions of three new tracks: "He's Not a Boy," "Release Me," and "Don't Make a Sound." Check out the clips above.
