The National is one of my favorite bands ever since I discovered them back in 2012. I fell in love with their melancholy sound and was floored by the vocals from Matt Berninger. His deep voice is a pleasure to listen to in the wee small hours of the morning. When I heard that Matt Berninger was releasing a solo album, I was hyped for it. I finally had a moment to listen to Serpentine Prison and I truly enjoyed this record. It has a gospel tinge to it that is a welcome surprise.
“One More Second” is one of my favorite tracks from the album and is a completely fleshed-out track with its organ solo towards the end. Hear it below.
