Interpol have shared a new remix by electronic duo DJDS of ‘The Rover’, the first in a set of remixes of their critically acclaimed, Top Ten new album ‘Marauder’. The infectious rework sees Balearic synth stabs and undulating rhythm serve as the backdrop to Paul Banks’ haunting vocals and lyrics of an elusive cult leader. Listen below
“We were thinking about remixers like Frankie Knuckles when we approached this one,” DJDS say. “A guy like that could take a song from any genre and make these incredible grooved out dub versions of his own. We looked at our remix of “The Rover” like that… just trying to build something that could be played in a club late at night.”
Having just played a triumphant show at LA’s legendary Hollywood Bowl as part of the North American leg of their worldwide tour, Interpol will touch down in the UK in November, including two consecutive nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall on the 14th and 15th. The band recently announced further worldwide tour dates for early 2019, which will see them appearing at venues including Madison Square Garden and Sydney Opera House.
