NYC post-punk band
Interpol is an American rock group based in New York. The line-up features Paul Banks (vocals, guitar, bass), Daniel Kessler (guitar) and Sam Fogarino (drums). Interpol was founded as a four-piece, but the group became a trio after the departure of bassist/keyboardist Carlos Dengler in 2010. Interpol, alongside fellow New Yorkers such as The Strokes and The National, were one of the most successful groups from the early 2000s post-punk revival. The band have released five studio albums, the last four of which all entered the US Billboard top 20. Their debut record Turn on the Bright Lights (2002) received wide-spread critical acclaim and is cited as one of the most influential records of the decade.

One of my favorite Interpol songs. This song is vague, but I believe it's about his relationship with someone, a girl, who helped him off of cocaine as they have written about a coke addiction in the past (Rest My Chemistry). "I relied on fewer lines to let you in, become my lover." I think he's saying he became less dependent on coke lines and more dependent on who he was falling in love with. This is just my interpretation.
