Lead singer & rhythm guitarist for NYC band Interpol
.Paul spent much of his childhood living in various European countries before returning to America to study literature and New York University. His degree may be responsible for his unusual way with words that manifests itself in many Interpol songs. His vocals have been compared to those of Ian Curtis from Joy Division, but retain a certain level of warmth despite morose subjects.
Paul Banks is a shy but captivating frontman.
