Interpol is the third EP release by New York post-punk revival and indie rock[1] band Interpol. It was released on June 4, 2002, and was the band's first release on the Matador Records label.


"PDA" is one of the oldest songs by Interpol and appeared on many of their early demos and EPs (including their first demo tape, the Fukd ID #3 EP and the Precipitate EP).

The same versions of "PDA" and "NYC" were later included on the band's first full-length, Turn on the Bright Lights, while "Specialist" was released as a bonus track on the album's 2005 reissue.[5]


Between the releases of the Interpol EP and Turn on the Bright Lights, Interpol released "PDA" as a promo single along with a music video directed by Christopher Mills.[6]

The EP was originally made available for sale for $3.98 on Matador's website.[7]


Interpol received much critical acclaim, and garnered the band a healthy amount of attention before the release of Turn on the Bright Lights. The EP also helped the band shed accusations of cloning early post-punk bands like Joy Division, establishing an individual sound that expanded upon rather than copied the band's influences.[2][8]

Treble magazine rated the EP the 39th best single of the decade.[9]

"PDA" was nominated for a MTV2 award in 2003[10] and is a playable track on Rock Band 2.
