Yeah it usually takes me a few listens with anything. But on occasion...

Does this band sound like Interpol? Asking because they are in the related artists. If they do, I'm not going to bother checking them out.

There are some similarities (the use of post-punk aspects in an indie rock setting) but I wouldn’t say they really sound alike no, the approach to songwriting is very different.

You listen to new national and then return to this and it's honestly night and day. Their songwriting has taken a hit

Lol, bad take. Interpol have 2 consistent albums & neither are as good as The National’s peak (this up to and inc. High Violet btw).

I know most people don't agree with me. I prefer Interpol's debut to anything by these chaps. El Pintor is also very good.

I was a big Interpol fan back in the day, I just don’t find them as consistent now. Their stuff wore off hard. Some of their material lacks subtlety as well. I still enjoy TOTBL & Antics has a few bangers.

turn on the bright lights definitely gives these guys' best albums a run for their money but otherwise interpol doesn't hold a candle

Yeah, it all went downhill from Antics. El Pintor is the only other album I actually listen to. The rest is just not good.

Been procrastinating on this band because I don't think I'm going to like them.

Pro tip: the b-sides on the “Abel” single are also great
