Her attire choices comes after fans couldn’t help but notice As It Was’ similarities to The Strokes.

One fan wrote earlier this year: ‘Is it just me or does by harry styles as it was sound like it stole from reptilia by the strokes?’

Another wrote: ‘The Strokes were an amalgamation of so much rock n’ roll that came before it, but now, I’m hearing a bunch of radio songs that sound like a cleaner, more produced Strokes. Naming one: I thought Harry Styles “As It Was” was just “One Way Trigger” for awhile.’

One follower penned: ‘I like As It Was by Harry Styles. it has the vibe of a garage rock revival song and I can easily see cage, or the strokes covering it.’
