Interpol’s ‘Something Changed’ - An Atmospheric Masterpiece.

Interpol have had an expansive career, with Guitar Hero entries and a discography spanning back to 2002, they are certainly a band that have stood the test of time. 

Their newly released single ‘Something Changed’ is taken from their upcoming album ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’ - which is set for release on July 15th.

‘Something Changed’ adopts a dark gloomy tone, with clear Nick Cave influences to be found in its haunting piano and melancholic vocals. The song's heavy, sombre tone works incredibly well and it's got a sound that's reminiscent of Radiohead, particularly within its jazzy, often eccentric drum riffs. 

The track is incredibly emotive and does well to immerse the listener. Its macabre piano, dark vocals, and elaborate drums all manage to come together to deliver a soundscape-like experience.

Interpol are clearly experimenting with a new, more mature sound. 'Something Changed' is a definite showcase of that concept, with its darker, classic post-punk-inspired tone, as opposed to the more alternative sound we’ve come to expect from the band. 


Interpol's 'Something Changed' is an emotive masterstroke in the band's expansive discography. Its haunting aura shows a maturing sound, and one that we can't wait to hear more of in 'The Other Side of Make-Believe'.
