I have been re-listening to The National’s discography the past few days and I still consider them my favorite indie rock band. As melancholy and somber as their sound may be it is also quite absorbing and mesmerizing. Vocalist Matt Berninger’s voice digs right into your soul and stays there.
“Mistaken For Strangers” is one of The National’s best songs with its complex lyrics and excellent guitar work. Check it out above.
