You’ve seen the way How it happens right This beast inside me He leads the way Then he’s at my side We feast until I’m starving And I feel my deep makeup The ache inside, go away Am I aping some old holiday Some remnants of a wild side
Interpol need no introduction really. This is their latest single off their upcoming El Pintor album (due on 9th September, and sneakily an anagram of Interpol). It’s called “All the Rage Back Home”, and, as a good friend said to me, “Here’s the new Interpol. Surprisingly it doesn’t suck.” And I guess it’s often the expectation, or rather hope that a beloved band’s upcoming album won’t suck *cough* Editors *cough* that leads to the joy, nay, the elation when it’s actually quite good.
It’s good then that after a lengthy hiatus and a few side projects, Interpol’s first single does the opposite of sucking, and this bodes very well for the rest of the album.
