How does your band write songs?
"Daniel [Kessler, Interpol guitar player] comes in with a well-formed idea, and then we all get into the room - and the song isn’t complete until we’re all happy. So in that sense, we write as a band, especially when it comes to arranging. It’s a blast, and it’s also a nightmare. I’m pulled in at an early point, so I have a sense of satisfaction.
"With quite a few Interpol songs, it was the beat that pulled them into a new direction and determined that a certain way was where they needed to go. There’s a lot of room for that."
