The National’s Demons

Highly respected indie rockers The National debuted a new track today titled Demons, the second track and first official single off their coming new record Trouble Will Find Me, out on May 21 off 4AD. Demons is both rough and tender. It’s a beautiful, raw, introspective ballad. The despondent, moody, intricate track builds up very slowly with Matt Berninger’s deep baritone vocals, at times reminding me of Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst. I found myself liking the song a lot by the time it reached the end. Now, I can’t wait to hear more from their sixth studio album.
