Interpol Share The Rover Video

Wednesday, 11 July 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Interpol have shared a video for The Rover.

The track is cut from their new album, 'Marauder', which is due to arrive on August 24 via Matador Records and is the follow up to 2014's 'El Pintor'.

The video, meanwhile, was conceived by the band's Paul Banks, directed by Gerardo Naranjo and stars actor Ebon Moss-Bachrach, of The Punisher and Girls television series.

In a statement, Banks said:

“I like to describe the video for "The Rover" as a prequel. It’s the origin story of the character described in the song, the birth of a cult leader. When we meet him he is partly unhinged. He’s a man on the verge, an artist subjected to great pressures, and beset with existential frustrations. A distracted hipster who enjoys psychedelics, let’s say.
The events that take place in Mexico City, be it a bump on the head, a visit to a shaman, or the influence of his rescuers (the street gang known as “Los Locos”) trigger the birth - the eruption -  of this new figure, “the rover.” His rescuers become his first followers. 
In the end of the video he exacts his “revenge” on Interpol with a mischievous act of disruption during the press conference. He grabs me by the head - to save me? Forgive me? Or simply as a gesture of his new independence - the butterfly becoming.”

When football fever gripped England in the summer of 2018, as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off Sweden to book a place in the World Cup semi-finals, the celebrations extended to the sweltering heat of London’s Hyde Park. A huge crowd had assembled to witness a similarly colossal line-up curated by the Cure at British Summer Time, swapping the pubs and bars of the capital for sweeping goth-pop following the final whistle.

Steve Mason - About The Light (Album Review)
Thu 24 Jan 2019
‘About the Light’, Steve Mason’s first collection since 2016, is a raucous album of finely tuned British rock that gyrates and swaggers with skill and precision. It’s an excellent turn from a musician whose decades-long musical career has taken him on a journey through folktronica, experimental indie and the borderlands of downtempo shoegaze, and who has been through multiple reinventions since the Beta Band called it quits.
Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Blood Red Shoes’ fifth studio album is a lairy procession of ‘90s-infused indie-rock songs that make great use of Laura-Mary Carter’s sexy, laconic burr. Created after the band fell out—and Carter promptly left for L.A.—the Brighton duo built bridges and got to work. The result is probably their best work since 2008’s ‘Box of Secrets’.

Photo: Ryan Pfluger We’ve all got them: those little chores we should be getting on with. Posting that letter. Watering our houseplants. Shaving our legs. Sharon Van Etten’s got them, too, but she favours a different approach to these small administrative tasks. ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, her fifth album, is about being more present and not giving a shit about the small stuff.
