INTERPOL: THE ROVER

Interpol’s latest single, “The Rover”, from their upcoming album, Marauder, scheduled to be released in August 2018.

SPIN review: This newest Interpol song primarily sounds like a new Interpol song, or even an old Interpol song. The shuffle beat is immediately reminiscent of “Say Hello to the Angels,” infused with the all-consuming gloominess of the band’s 2010 self-titled album.

“The Rover” sounds like past Interpol with producer Dave Fridmann’s—best known for his work with the Flaming Lips—trademark fuzziness on top. The guitars have the same boxy, ringing tone they’ve had since “Untitled,” Sam Fogarino’s drums remain frantic and deceptively simple, and Paul Banks’s lyrics, while better than they’ve been (“That’s enough for excitements today” should be instantly iconic), are still impenetrable.
