Inbetweenies! INTERPOL’s Masterstroke Single ‘NYC’ Turns 20 Next Year

What Turn Up The Volume just watched/played between two coffees

10 December 2021

Band: INTERPOL
Who: Celebrated post-punk
rockers from New York City
Active: 1997-present / 6 LPs

Song: NYC
A slow-burning and glowing torch, with
a spine-chilling guitar line starting around
the 2-minute mark and gleaming until the
very last second. Pure magic!

From their 2002 debut album
Turn On The Bright Lights.

Great lyrics too…

I had seven faces
Thought I knew which one to wear
I’m sick of spending these lonely nights
Training myself not to care

The 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 (got to be some more change in my life)
New York cares (got to be some more change in my life)
