Interpol "The Rover" (Gerardo Naranjo, dir.)

Interpol - The Rover

A strange Day In The Life for Interpol that blurs reality with fiction and psychedelia as they have an actual press conference in Mexico City — check the recording of the livestream — where a character played by actor Ebon Moss-Bachrach brings chaos to the table.

Paul Banks, Interpol:: “I like to describe the video for ‘The Rover’ as a prequel. It’s the origin story of the character described in the song, the birth of a cult leader. When we meet him he is partly unhinged. He’s a man on the verge, an artist subjected to great pressures, and beset with existential frustrations. A distracted hipster who enjoys psychedelics, let’s say.

The events that take place in Mexico City, be it a bump on the head, a visit to a shaman, or the influence of his rescuers (the street gang known as ‘Los Locos’) trigger the birth – the eruption – of this new figure, ‘The Rover.’ His rescuers become his first followers.

In the end of the video he exacts his ‘revenge’ on Interpol with a mischievous act of disruption during the press conference. He grabs me by the head – to save me? Forgive me? Or simply as a gesture of his new independence – the butterfly becoming."
