The National “Afraid of Everyone”
The National are back with the second song to be released from their upcoming High Violet album. As advertised, the song is dark and hypnotic, both musically and lyrically. The music swells over the course of the track and is a great backdrop for Matt Beringer’s broken heart laments. Singing about being afraid and not having enough drugs to cope with life, he has never sounded as despondent or powerful on record and it only serves to make me even more excited for the new album.
