Paul Banks, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for Interpol, finally steps fully out from behind his Julian Plenti alter-ego on his second solo album ‘Banks’.Following this summer’s limited edition (and now sold out) EP, the new album is a tour-de-force of mechanized, minor key intensity.
Recorded in New York and Connecticut with producer Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, Shearwater and Jónsi, among others), Banks is by turn bleak, sad and exhilarating. Featuring some of Banks’ most complex song structures yet, tracks like ‘The Base’ and ‘Young Again’ explore topics ranging from military alienation and loss of childhood “I’m young again, thanks a lot – I feel young again, ra ra,” Banks sings, to a background of mournful, treated guitars, backward masking and raw strings.
Thanks to Spotify and Tone Deaf lucky fans in Melbourne will be amongst the first in the world to hear the highly anticipated album in full.
