New album Sleep Well Beast is out now via 4AD.
Ohio-based alternative/indie rock outfit The National, have shared another new track from their upcoming electronica tinged upcoming new album Sleep Well Beast. ‘Day I Die’, despite including new instrumental efforts, follows the group’s well trodden formula. But, ya know, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
The video for the single is fascinating though. Coming across like some kind of LSD infused black light party, it adds a disenchantment to the song that is at odds with The National’s emotionally upfront musical approach. Opposites, and all that.
