As we are speaking, Interpol’s men in black are said to be in the final stages of their new album, which will follow up 2014’s El Pintor.
Their fusión of post-funk and -rock has been called everything from “eerie” to “melodramatic”,
Quoting a 2017 article from the Independent:
Shaped in the shadow of 9/11, the four-piece’s songs were as immaculate as their tailored suits: charred, precise post-punk odes to loss, regret and feeling disconnected in an evolving city. Intimate and anxious, Interpol’s atmospheric despondency helped usher in an era of seriousness in indie-rock.
All though the new album will only be their sixth album, they are very much intertwined with the current generation of adults that discovered music at the turn of the century in their antsy years. They never changed their wardrobe nor did they ever stray far from their musical style, keeping a loyal and growing group of fans.

One of my personal favorites is the song below, from their 2014 album, which shows their versatility. It’s definitely a danceable song that I think will work great at RF18.
It will be their fourth time at Roskilde Festival. If anyone saw them in previous years (either at RF or elsewhere), I’d love to hear about them!
