Interpol Reveal A Seedy New Music Video


Interpol have premiered the new music video for the track ‘My Desire’, taken off their recently released fifth studio album El Pintor.

The clips show the band performing in a dive bar in the Lower East Side of New York, while a man looks back at photos of his life.

El Pintor sees the New York trio return to their early and arguably best sound. The LP is the band’s first album in four years, and first since the departure of bass and keyboard player Carlos Dengler in 2010.

The remaining band members are singer/guitarist Paul Banks, guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Sam Fogarino.

Speaking about the album, Banks said: “It was pretty clear to me before we went into the studio that the songs had a strong identity. We could go record a record or we could go play a show. And I felt like we could go down to like a very small club with very little maintenance and play a pretty good show at that point of this new material.”

The video is directed by Markus Lundqvist who previously worked with Daft Punk and Madonna, and features actor Frank Grillo (The Grey, End of Watch, Captain America).

Watch the video for ‘My Desire’ below.

Interpol play Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, from Tuesday 10th February 2015 to Thursday 12th February 2015, tickets from €39.05 to €49.65.
