Valensi brings in a smooth, wailing solo that is followed by Hammond’s spiraling guitar riffs.
Valensi and Hammond belt out brief jangle-washes on the guitar to Casablancas’ seductive, monotone vocals and the smooth bounce of Fraiture and Moretti.
Casablancas then sings, “That was you up on the mountain/All alone and all surrounded/Walking on the ground you’re breaking/Laughing at the life you’re wasting” as Hammond plays brief, wailing solos as Valensi accompanies with his swanky guitar riffs and the bouncy rhythms of Fraiture and Moretti.

 Net Music Countdown: Nick Valensi's Guitar Influences
NEW YORK, NY Thursday Jun.10.2004 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- The Strokes'; guitarist Nick Valensi first picked up a guitar when he was five years old.
By the time Valensi was eight, he talked them into getting him an electric guitar.
I mentioned I was into GNR, so I obviously admire Slash's guitar playing, not to mention Brian May, who Slash ripped off a lot." Valensi continued, "I also love all the guitar work by the Velvet Underground, whom I got into as a teenager.

 GOSPEL | A Strokes Dedicated Site: Spread the Word, Brothers + Sisters
The youngest and — in a strangely converse, poetic sort of way — also the tallest, Nick is, infamously, the Pretty Stroke and quite a hit with the ladies if the gossip is to be believed.
Possessed of a sarcastic, sometimes acerbic wit, he brings a sort of eccentric and patently goofy elegance to the group.
Before his high school musical epiphany (from which eventually would spring The Strokes), Nick would hang out in Central Park with his elder sister picking out favorite songs on the guitar — songs always by other people.

 Epiphone Elitist Nick Valensi Riviera P-94 Guitar Review:   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Nick Valensi, lead guitarist for the Strokes, used to call his customized '60s Epiphone Riviera "the greatest instrument never made," but he can't say that any more.
The Epiphone Elitist Nick Valensi Riviera P-94 is part of the prestigious Elitist line of vintage-inspired Epiphones, and the classic semi-hollowbody model is fitted just like Valensi's, with genuine Gibson P-94 pickups.
The patented P-94 is a unique combination that provides the best of both worlds -- the hot, thick, punchy sound of a Gibson P-90 in a humbucker-size housing; it uses the same enamel-coated vintage wire and Alnico-V magnets as the P-90 and comes in calibrated neck and bridge models for balanced output.

 THE STROKES INTERVIEWS NICK VALENSI OF THE STROKES TALKS TO CRUD
Guitarist, Nick Valensi seems a bit fed up describing his music and explaining the concepts and reasoning behind the sound of The Strokes.
Like The Velvet Underground, The Strokes are a New York based band who earned their bones within the gritty NY underground rock scene and rose to the surface due to word of mouth, reputation and buzz.
Although it is a worthy and highly complementary comparison, it just irks Valensi every time he hears his band being compared to the 70's genre.

Valensi has laid down parts for Spektor’s track Better, which features on the singer-songwriter’s upcoming long player Begin To Hope.
However, despite Valensi having already played with Spektor with the rest of his band on Modern Girls and Old Fashion Men — the B side to Strokes’ single Reptilia — it was his quintessentially “cool” reputation that got him the gig.

 The Strokes 'Room On Fire'
This time the sound is even tauter, even more compressed, Fab Moretti’s drums more man-machine-like, Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond’s guitars even choppier, the songs even shorter (the album clocks in at a mere 33 minutes 12 seconds, and features seven tracks under the three minute mark).
For where 'Is This It' pushed songwriter and vocalist Julian Casablancas firmly to the fore, his voice is now just one cog in a collective machine.
With Casablancas democratically low in the mix, the main beneficiary is Nick Valensi, whose guitar work is featured much more heavily than before.

 The Strokes, ULU, November 29 2005
This is no bad thing as The Strokes have gone back to doing what they do best which is purveying deliciously twisted guitar pop that refuses to outstay its welcome.
As the zigzagging arpeggiated guitar harmonies of 'Red Light' draw to a close, nods of approval are exchanged around the venue and 'Heart In A Case' re-affirms what was hoped for — The Strokes are back on form and nowhere is this more apparent than on the pure Blondie pop of Electricityscape.
The jerky intro to 'Last Night' sends the venue into spasms and it’s an energy that The Strokes feed off as Nick Valensi throws more shapes than is typical.
