Released October 22 2012
Paul Banks, lead singer and guitarist for Interpol, finally stepped fully out from behind his Julian Plenti alter-ego on his second solo album, Banks. Released in 2012, Banks is a tour-de- force of exhilarating minor-key intensity.
Banks was recorded in New York and Connecticut with producer Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, Shearwater, Jónsi…). The album is both personal and epic, catchy and serpentine – much like your favorite Interpol albums – with Paul’s wry humor, bare emotion, and varied influences all in full effect.
