Album cover artwork for Interpol with blac vinyl record popping outDark, melodic, and slightly haunting, lead singer Paul Banks’ voice remains as soothing as any lullaby on this Manhattan act’s seventh studio album.

Ducking and weaving between driving drums and wavering guitars, Banks takes you by the hand and slow-dances you through this record’s polished production. While carried as always by a lingering sense of uneasiness that is distinctly Interpol, The Other Side of Make-Believe also offers some undeniably cathartic and optimistic moments that conjure memories of the band’s debut.

Blessed with beautiful harmonies and intricate lyricism, this record stands as proof Interpol remain a band to keep up with.

The Other Side of Make-Believe by Interpol is out July 15 via Matador/Remote Control.
