More About

Paul Banks is coming to San Francisco. This might elicit two responses: 1) "Man, I love Interpol! Can you believe Turn on the Bright Lights came out 10 years ago?" or, 2) "He sounds like the music in that AT&T commercial." Both of these, while technically correct, are irrelevant to the Interpol singer's upcoming show, however. The driving riffs and his booming voice of yore take a backseat on his new solo debut (appropriately called Banks). Instead, the songwriter explores many different facets of his voice over brooding, complex instrumentation. A song like "Arise, Awake" would appear neither on an Interpol record nor a car commercial. This, especially live, should be a very good thing.
