Video: The Strokes Play 'Under Control' During a Quiet Moment at Coachella

NYC rockers perform a mellow ballad from their second album, 'Room on Fire'

A little more than halfway through the Strokes' set at the Coachella festival on Saturday night, the New Yorkers slowed things down for a tender, mellow rendition of "Under Control," a ballad from their second album, Room on Fire. It's great to hear the band sound so loose and relaxed — they typically sound more wired and uptight, but in this performance they approach the easygoing soul of Otis Redding.
