|Interpol is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1997.
Having first performed at Luna Lounge along with other notable bands like The Strokes, Longwave, The National and Stellastarr, Interpol are one of the bands associated with the New York City indie music scene, and was one of several groups that emerged from the post-punk revival of the 2000s.
Interpol’s sound is generally a mix of staccato bass and rhythmic, harmonized guitar, with a snare heavy mix, drawing comparisons to post-punk bands such as Joy Division and The Chameleons. Aside from the lyrics, Interpol songwriting method includes all of the band members, rather than relying on any given chief songwriter.
Interpol’s debut album Turn on the Bright Lights (2002) was critically acclaimed, making it to tenth position on the NME’s list of top albums in 2002 as well as No. 1 on Pitchfork Media’s Top 50 Albums of 2002. Subsequent records Antics (2004) and Our Love to Admire (2007) brought them greater critical and commercial success.
Interpol released its fourth, self-titled album in 2010. The band went on hiatus from 2011 through 2012 while they focused on other projects. Their fifth studio album El Pintor was released in 2014.
Not many bands have the calibre and consistency of Interpol (Whoever just said “U2” can take a hike). These New Yorkers and their British singer Paul Banks have a whole collection of songs divided into five incredibly classy albums. In 2002, with Turn On The Bright Lights, Interpol burnished the black image of post-punk, and the indie world discovered the baritone voice of Paul Banks, Ian Curtis reincarnated. Such comparisons and expectations should have weighed down on their shoulders but, two years later, with Antics, they were hammering in the nails for the “major band” sign on Banks and co’s boat. El Pinto, their latest chapter and an evocative anagram, marks the rearrangement of the four-piece into three, now almost alone at the top of the world.
Good session! Enjoy!
