About this album

Turn on the Bright Lights is the debut album of New York City band Interpol. It was released in 2002 on Matador Records to a great deal of critical acclaim and sold exceptionally well for an release; it has sold 499,000 copies in the U.S. so far. It was also ranked highly on the yearly lists of many music critics, and has to date sold 86,000 in the UK despite only charting as high as #101.

Musically, many have pointed out the similarities between Turn on the Bright Lights and the bands Joy Division and The Chameleons. “PDA”, “NYC”, “Obstacle 1” and “Say Hello to the Angels” were the singles from Turn on the Bright Lights, and a video was shot for each with the exception of “Say Hello to the Angels”. “Leif Erikson” was named for Leif Ericson. The track “Untitled” also appeared in Season 9, episode 24 of the US Television show, Friends.
