The National, ‘Sea of Love’ [Video]
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.
There’s even a little kid, dressed accordingly, playing air guitar and having a fine time while doing so.
And that’s the extent of the action, with one camera focused on the band as it plays the song. It’s an animated visual accompanying a sombre song and the contrast works. It ends when they take a bow. ‘Trouble Will Find Me,’ meanwhile, drops May 21.
