Paul Banks - Banks
Interpol lead Paul Banks is releasing a new album, Banks on October 22nd. It’s the first under his own name, Julian Plenti… Is Skyscraper was the first, but this was under the Plenti moniker.
Earlier this year was an EP under Banks’ own name, titled Julian Plenti Lives, confusing, I know. The EP was a confusing set of songs, with a Sinatra cover, an instrumental track. THe was however a stand out in Summertime is Coming, it’s no surprise this song appears on the album.
With the announcement of the album the song The Base was made available for download, if it wasn’t for this song I probably wouldn’t be that excited for the release of the album. It’s a great song, reliving the heavy older sound of Interpol, but still has a soft, almost gentle side to it.
