Interpol Share Guitar-Heavy New Song ‘Ancient Ways’: Listen

It’s all about the reverb on Interpol‘s new song.

“Ancient Ways,” released today (Aug. 18), is a track of little rest. It hits hard from its start, launching immediately into a quick drum beat and a wall of guitars. That rarely lets up throughout the song’s three-minute run time.

Along the way, singer Paul Banks rails against tradition. “F**k the ancient ways,” he sings as the guitar tones swell. It’s quintessential Banks: rarely does he jump from more than a few-note vocal rage, though he does let loose a falsetto for a brief time about two-thirds through.

The song is the second taste off Interpol’s new record El Pintor, following first single “All the Rage Back Home.”
