Show Review

Adding to the already massive week they're already having (new album, their own pop up store/gallery in NYC), The National reveal this stark grey video for first single, "Bloodbuzz Ohio". It's mainly a one man show, with vocalist Matt Beringer moping about the city, intercut with a few lonely dance moves for the camera. Filmmaker DA Pennebaker makes a cameo appearance as a bartender as well. The clip is directed by Hope Hall, Andreas Burgess, and Matt's wife Carin Besser.

Artist Bio

The National is an American indie rock band formed in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, in 1999, and currently based in Brooklyn, New York. The band's lyrics, which have been described as "dark, melancholy and difficult to interpret", are written and sung by Matt Berninger, a baritone. The rest of the band is composed of two pairs of brothers: twins Aaron (guitar and keyboard) and Bryce Dessner (guitar) and Scott (bass) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). The National has been compared to Joy Division, Leonard Cohen, Wilco, and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. The name of the band was chosen because it "didn't mean anything" and was "benign and meaningless".
