Interpol - Untitled (from Turn On The Bright Lights)
Interpol is an American indie rock and post-punk revival band from New York City. Formed in 1997, the band’s original line-up consisted of Paul Banks (vocals, guitar), Daniel Kessler (guitar, vocals), Carlos Dengler (bass guitar, keyboards) and Greg Drudy (drums, percussion). Interpol, having first performed at Luna Lounge along with other notable bands like The Strokes, Longwave, The National and stellastarr, is one of the bands associated with the New York City indie music scene, and was one of several groups that emerged out of the post-punk revival of the 2000s. The band’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. Interpol’s debut album Turn on the Bright Lights (2002) was critically acclaimed. Subsequent records Antics (2004) and Our Love to Admire (2007) have confirmed the band’s initial success and turned them into a commercial and critical success. The band released its fourth, self-titled album on September 7, 2010.
