The National: High Violet Out 5/11

NEW ALBUM HIGH VIOLET OUT MAY 11

The National
High Violet is a nervy, melodic, explosive and beautiful set of songs that find The National at the height of their collaborative powers. The music is wide-ranging in its moods, by turns intimate and rough, expansive and spare, full of stark angles and atmosphere. Berninger‘s singing — wild, half-broken, sly — evokes a feeling of being haunted, by love, by paranoia, by something just out of reach. High Violet may be The National’s most thematically twisted record to date but it somehow also manages to be their most infectious and immediate.
