(2012, Matador Records) USA, NYC.
Here is Paul Banks first album from his side project under his name.
Let’s start with this amazing artwork, photographs he took himself.
This album sounds like Interpol’s earliest album and this is what I like about it. You may think that by listening to No Mistakes.
You’ll notice the addition of violins and keyboards more than in Interpol.
My favorite song and the strongest is Paid For That, the chorus is very powerful and full of melodies, bravo !
I love the bass guitar lines in I’ll Sue You and Summertime Is Coming.
Arise, Awake displays interesting ambiences.
A good album.
