MP3: Paul Banks “The Base”

Posted September 12th, 2012 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

For his second solo LP, Interpol’s Paul Banks has abandoned his Julian Plenti alias in favor of his own name. The album, entitled Banks, will be out October 23, 2012 on Matador Records, home to all but one Interpol record. Having such a distinctive voice is a bit of a double edged sword for singers in high profile bands who embark on solo careers. Most people will simply say, “eh, it just sounds like Interpol.” Well, yes, but also not really. [via Pitchfork]
