Watch Interpol’s Surftacular Video for ‘All the Rage Back Home’
By Radio.com Staff
Interpol will offer up their fifth full-length album on Sept. 9, titled El Pintor. The collection will be released by Matador Records, and will open with the peppy bounce of lead song, “All the Rage Back Home,” for which a music video has dropped today (July 9).
Peppy by Interpol’s standards, of course; not peppy by, say, Miley Cyrus’ standards.
The black-and-white video, directed by frontman Paul Banks and collaborator Sophia Peer, finds the band performing the new song in a darkened room. Meanwhile, shots outside said room are spliced into the picture, featuring large, rushing waves.
Those waves are traversed by the video’s secondary star: a surfer, who has quite the skill, doing some acrobatics over the surges with nary a bobble.
If you don’t like watching things, you can get an early download of the song by pre-ordering the new Interpol set.
This is Interpol’s first album since their 2010 self-titled collection, and judging by the live samplings available on the Internet, it might see Interpol regain some of the large-scale audience they once held when “Slow Hands” was unavoidable.
