If you think you’ve got a good gauge on the three members of Interpol, you may need to reevaluate after watching their new video for “Everything Is Wrong”.
As the band makes its way to a show, we get a first-hand look at each men’s respective moral fiber: Drummer Sam Fogarino proves to be warm and charming as he woos a pretty girl; guitarist Daniel Kessler is a gentle soul who helps an old lady cross the street; and frontman Paul Banks is, well, sort of a tool, harassing people on sidewalks as his giant ego is led through NYC by a legit bouncer. Considering that Banks directed the clip himself, you’ve got to wonder if this is all a big joke — or, a bit of on-screen therapy. Watch it below.
“Everything Is Wrong” is off Interpol’s most recent long-player, El Pintor. The band’s next release comes on Record Store Day (April 18th), when they unveil a 7-inch featuring “Everything Is Wrong” and the B-side “What Is What”.
