Free Single - Paul Banks - The Base

The vocalist of Interpol, Paul Banks, has a solo album coming out in the near future, called "Banks". He's sharing a free download of the opening track, "The Base", which is a pretty promising taster for the forthcoming album.

Its a halfway point between the sound of indie rock and the rhythm and soul of a synthpop track. I could only imagine what kind of tastes in music I'd have if this was the kind of synthpop I had gotten into back in the mid 2000s. God, I hope kids out there now get exposed to this kind of music while their tastes are forming.
