Interpol - Antics
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Interpol - AnticsAlthough they hail from the Big Apple, the members of Interpol have more in common with English bands than New York’s Velvet Underground. Much has been made of Interpol’s debts to Joy Division, but on its second album the group’s singer Paul Banks sounds more like the Psychedelic Furs’ Richard Butler than Ian Curtis. Fans of Interpol’s debut, Turn on the Bright Lights, will devour such dark, dreamy soundscapes as “Evil,” “Narc” and “Not Even Jail.” But the highlight is the more uplifting opener “Next Exit.”
