7digital What we said: As Interpol fans will tell you, this is not the first solo album that lead singer Paul Banks has released. Nope, that arrived in 2010, under the pseudonym Julian Plenti. And that’s not the moniker he goes by when he’s on the decks, either: oh no, that’s DJ Fancypants. Anyway, it seems Paul’s finally decided that mum and dad knew best, and has stopped mucking about with assumed names for his sophomore effort. As proud Interpol anoraks ourselves, we’ve found a lot to love on album number two, including the claustrophobic indie-rock of ‘I’ll Sue You’ and ‘No Mistakes’. But it’s the newfound playfulness showcased on tracks like ‘The Base’, that ensures Banks is much more than an Interpol stopgap.
