The National joined Steven Colbert last night on The Colbert Report and played 2 songs. Check out the web exclusive video for Sea of Love:
The brooding indie rockers sure know how to capture that heavy emotional feeling of longing and disconnection. Is it fair to say that The National has taken over that corner of the rock market now that Radiohead has ventured more into electronic music and Thom Yorke is content to party with his new LA scene?
The chorus here for "Sea Of Love" is the namesake of the National's newest album, Trouble Will Find Me, which was officially released earlier this week. Matt Berninger was also interviewed by Colbert, which you can view here. You can check out their performance of "Graceless" right here.
