Interpol is an American rock band formed in 1997 in New York City. Comprising of members Paul Banks (vocals, guitar), Daniel Kessler (guitar, vocals), Sam Fogarino (drums), and Carlos Dengler (bass), the band gained significant recognition in the early 2000s for their unique style and atmospheric sound.

Throughout their career, Interpol has been known for their post-punk revivalist approach, drawing influences from bands like Joy Division and The Chameleons. Their music often features intricate guitar work, driving basslines, and hauntingly melodic vocals. This distinctive sound has earned them a dedicated fan base and critical acclaim.

Interpol's debut album, "Turn on the Bright Lights" released in 2002, is widely regarded as a seminal indie rock record. It received widespread praise for its dark lyrical themes and atmospheric instrumentation. The album's standout tracks include "Obstacle 1," "PDA," and "NYC." Following its release, Interpol quickly became one of the leading bands of the post-punk revival movement.

The band continued to release successful albums over the years, including "Antics" (2004), "Our Love to Admire" (2007), and "El Pintor" (2014). These records showcased Interpol's growth as musicians while maintaining their signature sound.
