Last week, the unlikely pairing of RZA (of the Wu-Tang Clan) and Paul Banks (Interpol frontman) announced that they are teaming up as a new duo, known as Banks & Steelz. The groups first single, entitled "Love + War", is a fantastic blend of alt rock instrumentals, heavily distorted guitar and a jumpy backbeat. RZA's fast paced, anecdotal flow is supported by a radio-ready hook performed by Banks, along with a special appearance from Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah. Today, we got the Arms Race-directed video for the song. The Tarantino inspired video features a Jules/Vincent style dialogue between RZA and Banks, as well as a yakuza torture scene straight out of Reservoir Dogs (but with a twist!) Do yourself a favor and check out the new track and video below.
