NO – El Prado

NO_el-prado-art-575x575

If Interpol dug an emotional ditch in the rock landscape, then NO will be the band to fill it.

There’s no denying that NO’s debut full-length sounds like an Interpol record, but it runs sentimentally counter to an album like Turn On The Bright Lights. There’s a distinct Diamond Rings-ish ambiance on El Prado; it’s overcast and brooding, yet romantic and danceable.

Check out “Stay With Me,” below, for a sample (not exactly a toe-tapper, this particular tune, but you’ll get the picture). And no, it’s not a cover of that Shakespeare’s Sister song, but it’s not really that far off. El Prado hits stores next week.
