Interpol Live

The crowd is into it from the jump; they clap in unison as the drummer pedals the bass. The band’s sound is composed of harmonized guitar, staccato bass, and lots of snares. Banks’ lyrics require focus to pick out of Interpol’s wall of sound. Though this is less true live than in some recordings. Interpol attracts diehard fans who know the band’s music well, which makes for a highly involved crowd atmosphere.
