INTERPOL –  ” The Other Side of Make-Believe “

Posted: July 19, 2022 in MUSIC

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Interpol’s debut album, “Turn on the Bright Lights“, but the band are looking forward too with the release of their seventh album. They made it with Flood and Alan Moulder, whose combined credits include My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails and U2, to name three. Says guitarist Daniel Kessler, “The process of writing this record and searching for tender, resonant emotions took me back to teenage years; it was transformative, almost euphoric. I felt a rare sensation of purpose biting on the end of my fishing rod and I was compelled to reel it in.”

Interpol have released their seventh studio album, “The Other Side of Make-Believe“, via Matador Records.

After beginning work on “The Other Side of Make-Believe” remotely, the band reunited at a rented home in the Catskills to begin fleshing out new material in early 2021. They completed it later that year in North London while reuniting with previous collaborator Alan Moulder, who co-produced the album with Flood.

The Other Side of Make-Believe” also explores the more sinister undercurrents of the present day. Daniel Kessler’s serpentine guitar arrangements crest skywards in “Into The Night,” Samuel Fogarino shatters his percussive precision into strange meters, while Paul Bank’s vocals exudes a deep, yearning vulnerability.
