The National release bittersweet short film ‘I Am Easy To Find’ ahead of LP this Friday

Luke Sharkey

If you’ve been keeping a close eye on the National ahead of the release of I Am Easy To Find this Friday you’ll have noticed the group teasing a short film to accompany the LP.

That short film, stars Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider, ex Machina) under the same title as the LP and directed by Mike Mills, was released over the weekend.

"I Am Easy To Find" - A Film by Mike Mills / An Album by The National

The film, shot in moody black & white, depicts a bittersweet childhood – seemingly happy yet tinged with sadness.

The 22 minute short also features plenty of material from the forthcoming LP, we’re pretty sure we heard Lisa Hannigan’s voice on a track around the 3-minute mark.

We really enjoyed everything we heard, even if the narrative and visuals broke our hearts a little. It’s these extracurricular endeavours that mark The National out as one of the top alternative rock groups out there.
