More new The National – ‘Afraid Of Everyone’


Another great tune from High Violet. This time it’s track five – the core of the album where Matt Beringer has clearly got a really bad case of the fear – “I’m afraid of everyone” , “I don’t have the drugs to sort it out” & “Your voice is swallowing my soul”.

Cripes. And the music doesn’t alleviate the dark sentiment with the spooky backing vocals, the menacing troubling chord progression, the spindly guitar riff that appears and an all-consuming engulfing outro.
