Album Review Interpol - Maruader4 Stars
A return to form that sees the trio overcome their mid-career slump.
Between heading out on a 15th anniversary tour for debut ‘Turn On The Bright Lights’ and featuring in ‘Meet Me In The Bathroom’, the book diving into the New York indie revolution of the early 2000s, it’s safe to say Interpol have been looking back recently. Taking themselves back to the mindset of their heady early days on ‘Marauder’ serves them well - their sixth LP is a return to form that sees the trio overcome their mid-career slump.
Daniel Kessler’s tinny, reverberating guitars helm single ‘The Rover’ wonderfully, as distinctive as ever, while Sam Fogarino’s work behind the kit is intricate and pummelling at once. ‘Stay In Touch’ is a hip-shaking highlight, and the one true surprise here, but largely ‘Marauder’ simply sees Interpol proving their worth once again, and their prowess for creating bleak, blackened indie rock that’s full of feeling.
