Listen: Interpol, “Ancient Ways”

El-Pintor

From the opening drum kicks, to the hopelessly cavalier lyric, “Ooh, fuck the ancient ways,” listeners are instantly sucked into a swirling vortex of furious guitar riffs and imposing percussion with Interpol‘s latest song, “Ancient Ways”. If nothing but a ferocious shred-fest backed by lead singer Paul Banks’ world-weary voice, the unrelenting track proves a formidable one.

Interpol’s anticipated album El Pintor is out on September 9 on Matador.  (via Stereogum)
