Now, why did no one tell me that Interpol have a new single out?

I am too busy this month to do too much research on anything else but trickster-figures and Native American literature…le sigh.

Anyway, the new single “Lights” is nothing unexpected but incredibly beautiful. What I always love about this band is their sense for a climactic build-up. It’s like watching a really good thriller because somehow they compose the songs in a way that you bit by bit lean forward in anticipation, every limp tense and the blood boiling. And this air of unease and darkness that surrounds Mr Bank’s voice is always a nice addition. I hope that their album comes out in autumn because Interpol make the perfect soundtrack for the darker days of the year…

It’s not my favourite Interpol-video (nothing beats “Evil”) but if you can see beyond the slightly artsy (aka pretentious) look of it, it’s actually an interesting concept.
