A terse and stately National anthem
“I can’t fight it any more/I’m going through an awkward phase“, growls Matt Berninger on the first single in two years from cult indie-gods The National. Could he possibly be mocking his band’s reputation as rock’s resident harbingers of doom? It is, of course, a terse and stately anthem, and one that nicely sets the pace for new album ‘Trouble Will Find Me’.
