Interpol’s new video for “My Desire” follows their clips for “All The Rage Back Home” and “Twice As Hard” as the third from El Pintor, the band’s new album. Director Markus Lundqvist films the band playing to a handful of sad, desperate drunks in a mostly-empty bar, and it occurs to me that this is probably the ideal place to witness an Interpol show. The guy pounding whiskey and poring over Polarouds of an ex might be a mess, but he’s also approaching the band’s set with the right attitude. Watch it below.
El Pintor is out now on Matador.
