Subway is a porno
The pavements they are a mess
I know you've supported me for a long time
Somehow I'm not impressed
But New York cares

Interpol, 'NYC'

Interpol is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1997. Having first performed at Luna Lounge along with other notable bands like The Strokes, Longwave, The National and Stellastarr, it is one of the bands associated with the New York City indie-music scene, and was one of several groups that emerged from the post-punk revival of the 2000s. The band’s sound is generally a mix of staccato bass and rhythmic, harmonized guitar, with a snare heavy mix, drawing comparisons to post-punk bands such as Joy Division and The Chameleons. Aside from the lyrics, their songwriting method includes all of the band members, rather than relying on any given chief songwriter.
