The National, ‘Sea of Love’ [Video]

NationalFI

The National's 'Sea of Love,' off the forthcoming album 'Trouble Will Find Me,' is a thick, moody song. The video is the total opposite. It's lively and alive, and features the indie rockers performing in a cramped white space, wearing coordinated suits and trying to play their instruments despite space limitations.
