Even a band as dour as The National has to have a fun side. The Brooklyn quintet released the video clip for their new single “Graceless” (off of their latest album, Trouble Will Find Me), and it appears that the normally solemn band needed to let loose. The clip, which was directed by Sophia Peer in a style that resembles D.A. Pennebaker, shows the members of the band in the backyard of singer Matt Berninger’s parents’ house having a bit of fun. Beer baseball, pools, slip & slides, bouncy castles; all in a day’s work for The National.
The National’s Trouble Will Find Me is out now on 4AD Records. Check out the video for “Graceless” below:
