Show Review

The National have premiered the new music video for their song "Conversation 16", from fifth studio album High Violet. The video combines sadness, drama, and power, into an odd array of Presidential and Secret Service romantic fantasies that would appear comical, if it were not for the morbid seriousness of the song itself.

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".
