Songfacts®:

  • The song's black-and-white music video was directed by the band's frontman Paul Banks. The clip sees all three members of Interpol walking the New York streets with Banks accompanied by a bouncer. They then all converge on a backstage room before a performance.
  • Banks' girlfriend Helena Christensen makes a cameo appearance in the music clip as 'babe on street.' The supermodel's best known video appearance was the visual for Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game," which found her seducing the singer on a beach.

    Actor Christopher Abbot also appears in the clip as himself. You might know him from his role of Alison Williams' boyfriend Charlie in Girls.
