Who answers the phone in New York is plenti Julian, a guy who shares genes and birth certificate with Paul English, but rather want to assume that, after nearly 13 years of incubation, in the end his first album, 'Julian plenti Skyscraper is ... '(Arts & Crafts Mexico / Matador Records), will be released in Mexico on September 15.
"The name of Julian plenti was not a conscious decision. This idea of an alter ego had it for eight years, and also the word Skyscraper (skyscrapers) occurred to me for a song and then wanted to use the disc holder. It was not something to think about, but when you get art there are concepts and use, "says Julian, in a mixture of Spanish and English, from his home in the Big Apple.
Thus, although in this board-released internationally in August-plenti / Banks maintains links with the thick mild post-punk of Interpol, with the help of Mike Stroud (Ratatat), Sam Fogarino (Interpol, Magnetic Morning) and Striker Manley (Stiff Jesus ) is internal rather a sound akin to the art-rock and folk, with which even plays with string arrangements and wind.

I was playing in that time and bought a guitar to a Mexican friend. It's the black Les Paul that I know, whom I still play. "
With a tour starting in November, Julian sentence: "Most probably touch beyond the coming year. I want to go back to Mexico."
In 1996 and as an inhabitant of New York, Julian plenti / Paul Banks began a personal project purely acoustic. With a capital of some songs, made a few performances in bars and forums around Manhattan from 1998 to 2003, at important sites such as Tobacco Road, The Knitting Factory, The Living Room and Pete's Candy Store. The artist draws the latter as the scenario where you have felt better.
In 2001, Julian took a year off and left his project in incubation. The pause ended until 2006, when he started playing with Logic Pro software, which was the catalyst to resume the project.
His first step was to dust off their work and renew it. With demos in hand, plenti be shut himself in studies Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn, accompanied by Charles Burst, studio owner and former classmate, to give shape to these ideas. A few months after birth 'Julian plenti is ... Skyscraper', an album where his voice lives with more direct melodies that Interpol.
