“Affecting and immediate” – The Guardian, ★★★★ “Reinvigorated, brimming with energy and self-assurance.” – The Independent, ★★★★ “At the peak of their powers” – Q, ★★★★ “… remarkably successful in finding ways to modify their sound, pinching and folding the edges of their sharply drawn songs” – MOJO, ★★★★ “Sees Interpol proving their worth once again, and their prowess for creating bleak, blackened indie rock that’s full of feeling” – DIY, ★★★★ “a looser, wilder sound” – GQ “tightly plotted sixth studio record of simmering, moody indie-rock” – Esquire “Marauder sees them back to their swaggering peak” – Daily Star ★★★★
Following their successful Australian tour, Interpol have released a new ‘Fine Mess’, now available to stream and purchase via Matador / Remote Control.
‘Fine Mess’ continues the invigorated creative spirit of 2018’s triumphant album Marauder, presenting Interpol at their more urgent and essential – with Paul Banks’ feverish vocals and haunted lyrics telling of“a sanguine and starry pair, buoyed and dashed alike by their own dreams and appetites” interlocking withDaniel Kessler’s serpentine riffs and Sam Fogarino’s thundering rhythm section, distilled around the seditious refrain: ‘you and me / make a fine mess’.
‘Fine Mess’ is further testament to a band at their peak, and the first chapter in what promises to be yet another eventful year for Interpol.
Marauder has seen Interpol embark on a world tour including legendary venues such as Hollywood Bowl, Sydney Opera House, two nights at Royal Albert Hall, and an upcoming headline at Madison Square Garden, make national TV appearances on both sides of the Atlantic, including Jools Holland, Stephen Colbert, Seth Myers and ARTE, have two A-listed singles at BBC 6 Music, release music videos featuring Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Kristen Stewart and Finn Wittrock, and receive critical praise across the board, including The Guardian, MOJO, Q, The Independent, The Sun, Daily Star, DIY and others.
