Interpol - Antics,Turn on the bright lights

Turn on the Bright Lights was New York City rock band Interpol's first full-length album. It was released in 2002 on Matador Records to a great deal of critical acclaim and sold exceptionally well for an indie release. It also ranked highly on the yearly lists of many rock critics'.

Musically, many have pointed out the similarities between Turn on the Bright Lights and the 1970s group Joy Division. Both groups make heavy use of drums, often as the lead instrument in a song, and the lead singer of Interpol, Paul Banks, has a somewhat similar voice in tone to that of Joy Division's Ian Curtis.


Antics is the second album by New York City-based band Interpol, released on September 28, 2004 (see 2004 in music). Although more confident than its predecessor,Turn on the Bright Lights, it largely repeats the same formula of sparse arrangement driven by bass throb and strong drums, with powerful, evocative lyrics sung in a resonant, mordant voice by vocalist Paul Banks and intricate guitar lines.

The album was reissued in August 2005 in the United States with a bonus disc that contained four remixes by the band, a b-side, and the videos for all three singles.


Interpol is a New York City indie rock band formed in 1998. Their debut album Turn on the Bright Lights was critically acclaimed, while the follow-up, Antics, has also been a commercial and critical success. The members of the band are Paul Banks on vocals and guitar, Carlos Dengler on bass and keyboards, Sam Fogarino on drums, and Daniel Kessler on guitar and background vocals.

The band's sound is a dark mix of bass throb and choppy, sparse guitar. Turn on the Bright Lights was spare and tentative, but their second album Antics embraced a fuller, more confident sound. Both Antics and Turn on the Bright Lights were recorded at Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The band formed when Daniel Kessler met drummer Greg Drudy, now a member of screamo band Hot Cross, on the New York University campus. Kessler later added Carlos D., an ex-guitarist, on the bass, after meeting him in a history class. The line-up was complete after Kessler remembered an old friend he met while in Paris. Banks and Kessler ran into each other on the street, after losing touch since Paris, and Banks became lead singer. In 2000, Greg left the band, and Daniel recruited Sam, whom the band knew through his job at a local record store.

The band will take time off after their Antics tour for an unknown amount of time. A new song by the band, 'Direction' was released on the soundtrack to the television program 'Six Feet Under' on June 28, 2005. In addition to this, their music has also been used in a soundtrack to popular teen drama 'The OC.'
