Interpol are fresh from their appearance at London’s All Points East Festival, NME hailed their performance as “A tour-de-force in crystalline post-punk.”
Speaking to NME about their new EP ‘A Fine Mess’, frontman Paul Banks said: “It’s all material that we can see being played in a club with people dancing. Sometimes when you turn on an Interpol record you expect people to not be dancing because it’s coming from a more pensive or melancholy place. This is a place rocking EP.”
As for the lyrics of the EP, Banks continued: “’Marauder’ was a little more reflective, and this one’s more about taking the party by the horns. Maybe the lyrics are a little devious and mischievous. There’s no shame to that.”
