Back in the early 2000s, Interpol sparked a deluge of bands that nicked the taut bass lines and baritone vocals of Joy Division. More than a decade later, the group has weathered a shifting roster, a disappointing major label debut and various solo projects. Sonically, Paul Banks and company's latest album, Marauder, isn't that far removed from Interpol's 2002 debut, though the lyrics have gotten a bit more dense, scattered with allusions to cult leaders, office romances and the need for free speech. And yes, everyone in the band still dresses like they're attending a funeral. Brooklyn power pop outfit Sunflower Bean supports.
