Watch: Interpol ‘Something Changed’

Recently, Interpol premiered ‘Toni‘, the first single from their new album The Other Side Of Make-Believe, released July 15th on Matador. The song was accompanied by the opening instalment of a two-part film directed by Van Alpert (Post Malone, Machine Gun Kelly), which quickly went to garner over a quarter of a million views on YouTube.

Interpol have now released the second and concluding part, as well as unveiled new song ‘Something Changed’. Singer Paul Banks says: “In “Something Changed,” part 2 of our short film with Van Alpert, reality and reverie converge and our two lead characters find themselves in a kind of dream state – being pursued inexorably by an ominous figure (played by myself.) The lives of the three are intertwined in a nebula of fear, retribution, desire, and defiance. Who will receive their just deserts? Stay tuned and find out!!!” Watch below!

Still in shape, my methods refined,” sings Paul Banks on ‘Toni’, the opening track from Interpol’s 7th LP The Other Side of Make-Believe. The album breaks fresh ground for the group: parallel to exploring the sinister undercurrents of contemporary life, Interpol’s new songs are imbued with pastoral longing and newfound grace. Daniel Kessler’s serpentine guitar arrangements crest skywards, Samuel Fogarino shatters his percussive precision into strange metres, while Paul Banks’ sonorous voice exudes a vulnerability that is likely to catch most long-term fans of the band off guard. After all, says Banks, “there’s always a seventh time for a first impression.”
