Video of the Day #70: The National

Okay, so tomorrow it’s back to work / school / dossing around. It’s sunny as anything outside, and I fear that this may make your mood even better, or possibly dampen it. It’s a new song from The National, suitably dark and melancholy, but also incredibly beautiful, as ever. Matt Berninger is looking incredibly dapper in his suit, and sounding like a great progression from Boxer and Alligator.

I know I’ve only covered them twice, but I genuinely love The National. You can compare them to who you want, but let’s face it, they’re in a field of their own at the moment.
