VIDEO: Interpol “Barricade”

Posted August 27th, 2010 by eric

Interpol follows up the most bizarre video of its career with a much more conventional short-form take on “Barricade”, the first actual “single” off Interpol, out September 7th via Matador. With the departure of Carlos D., Interpol is “officially” a trio, since there’s no sign of Dave Pajo on bass in this clip. On the first few listens, “Barricade” sounds like formulaic Interpol, but I’ve grown to appreciate its nuances with repeated plays. It’s by far the most aggressive and danceable track off the band’s fourth LP, which hasn’t left my stereo in a week. Couldn’t resist the higher quality leak that eventually surfaced, but I did pre-order the record. Thus, my conscience rests easy.
