Cold and calculated, Interpol's music also has a warm breeze of innovation that makes the NYC band one of the more interesting groups currently in operation.

Interpol is: Paul Banks: Vocals, Guitar; Daniel Kessler: Guitar, Backing Vocals; Carlos Dengler: Bass, Keyboards; Sam Fogarino: Drums « hide
