Paul Banks recently sat down with ClashMusic to muse on the making of his solo album. “If you have a vision for what you want from a song there’s always compromise if it becomes collaborative” he said.
“For me, it’s incredible – bands make music which no solo artist can ever make because of that compromise, because of those conflicting energies. It’ll never be the same deal because bands are magic and I think solo endeavours – that’s the total expression of one artist. But a band, there’s the magic of collaboration which is very special”.
