The Strypes returned to London for an NME Awards show, with Austin Texas last night (February 13) – debuting their new EP ‘4 Track Mind’, in full.

The songs they performed from their mini-album, which was released earlier this week (February 10), included new single, ‘Hard To Say No’, ‘I Don’t Want To Know’, ‘So They Say’ and ‘Still Gonna Drive You Home’.
