Paul Banks – The Base

Paul Banks, Julian Plenti, Interpol, The Base, Paul Banks Band, Matador

I have already shared this track unofficially and everyone seems to agree, it’s certifiably the shit. Paul Banks is the head man for Interpol and was previously shopping a solo venture under the name Julian Plenti. Whatever he feels like calling himself, Banks will do just fine if he continues to build upon the infectious momentum he stroked with The Base.

This track is beautiful. At first, you won’t be able to realize it’s like three songs in one. There is some organized chaos going on behind the scenes which is all tied together in one diamond encrusted package. Seriously, this shit glitters.

It’s not fair we only have one track after such a tease. Luckily the album is not too far around the bend, with an expected release date of Oct 22 via Matador; pre-order now. And thank the stars I decided to write this up because Banks has just posted some fall tour dates. For all my DC loves, he’s hitting the Howard Theater Nov 9. Swoon!

  1. Finally, someone recognizes Paul’s talent and doesn’t use his solo work to bash Interpol’s supposed current inferiority.
