Brooklyn gloom-rock overlords the National are gearing up to release their new album, Trouble Will Find Me, on May 21 via 4AD. After spreading “Sorrow” to the art world on Sunday, the group perhaps decided to get the word out about its new LP in a slightly more positive and cheery way. And what’s the best way to endear yourself to people on the internet? Do an interview on Reddit and then release a video with a small child in it!
The group’s new video for the disheartening track “Sea Of Love” consists of a single shot of the band wearing matching black suits in a room too small for comfort. As the song builds, a kid appears and rocks out alongside with them on the ever-so-important air guitar. The clip was apparently inspired by this video from Russian post-punk group Zvuki Mu. Check it out below.
