Interpol return with 'Lights' video, stay super weird


interpolNew York’s dark-rock dandies Interpol will return this September with a self-titled fourth-album, their first since 2007’s Our Love to Admire—and first without longtime bassist/hairdo virtuouso Carlos D. And guess what? Whatever the calendar and the thermometer might say, it is not (ever) summer in the House of Interpol.

The clip for new single “Lights” begins with a title card: “Deep within the inner chambers of the Three-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle (Chalcosoma Caucasus), a closely guarded pheremone-harvesting ritual is about to begin.” And, in glossy, latex-ladied slo-mo, that’s pretty much exactly what follows.
