Beat of the Week: The National

ARTIST: The National
SONG: Afraid of Everyone
ALBUM: High Violet (5/11)
TOUR: Manchester, TN- Bonnaroo (6/10-6/13)

DOWNLOAD: The National- Afraid of Everyone

I’m a big fan of The National but not everyone appreciates Matt Berninger’s slow delivery and deep, even monotone (not my term) vocals. However, the quick pace, trippy chorus and washy vocal effects of the song transcend the band’s norm. Afraid of Everyone should open up The National to a new audience. My prediction: this song will be a big college radio/indie summer hit… maybe more. Enjoy!
