Paul Banks is better known as the front-man of New York indie trio Interpol. However, in 2009 he released a full-length solo record under the moniker of Julian Plenti, titled Julian Plenti Is… Skyscraper.
Banks recently announced that he’s working on a follow-up to that record, which he hopes to have out later this year. In the meantime, an EP has been readied, called Julian Plenti Lives…
The Julian Plenti Lives… EP features two original songs along with three covers that were originally produced by J Dilla, Harold Faltermeyer, and Frank Sinatra.
‘Summertime is Coming’ is the first single from Julian Plenti Lives…:
1. Perimeter Deactivated (Harold Faltermeyer cover)
2. Summertime Is Coming
3. Mythsysizer (J Dilla)
4. I’m A Fool To Want You (Frank Sinatra cover)
5. Cavern Worship
Julian Plenti Lives… is available now on Matador.
