Interpol's 'eternal' records
Interpol hope to have an "eternal feel" to all their records
The US indie group say they attempt to make all of their records with intricate layering which would sound good no matter what era it was listened to during, but this means it is not immediate to the listener.
Guitarist Adam Kessler said: "I'd like to think all our records have an eternal feel to them, since the beginning people have said to me it took them a couple of listens to get into it.
"We're not necessarily a first listen band. If you listen to it once you might have one interpretation, and you might not necessarily have the same one that you have after five listens."
Lead singer and guitarist Paul Banks added to Vice Magazine's Creator's Project: "We abide by the same rules we always have make an album the way you want to make it and its ambitious in the sense that we don't live in an easy society, where if people don't get it on first listen they may not get it at all."
He also said the band's attention to visual imagery - in their album artwork, logo and style - reflect the ambition of their records.
He added "It's always half crazy, it's not that were being pretentious - you're gonna evoke things with your artwork so you may as well invoke great things if it fits with what you want to do."
The band - completed by drummer Sam Fogarino - are presently involved in the Creator's Project, which create visuals to accompany a variety of musical projects, and will unveil work at this year's Coachella Festival.
