How Sleep Deprivation Helped The National Refine Their Music on "Trouble Will Find Me"

June 17, 2013 - The rise of the career of The Brooklyn based band The National has been slow and steady. Critical kudos begat bigger crowds and sales. But each of the band’s albums have also showed increasing awareness of their strengths as well. In this session we hear how sleep deprivation lead the band to more straightforward songs.
For well over a decade now The National have been uncompromising in their approach to music making. On their sixth studio album, Trouble Will Find Me (4AD), the Brooklyn-based band further embrace their ominous personality that seeks to find beauty though sorrow and darkness.

With a decade of music-making under their belts, The National stand ready for another round of introductions. With each subsequent release, the band has garnered a wider fan base and louder critical praise. Upon the release of their new album High Violet, the band should be prepared for its most overwhelming ovation yet.

The National

The National is a band of New Yorkers transplanted from Cincinnati, Ohio: Matt Berninger, Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Bryan Devendorf, and Scott Devendorf. What each member of the band does is not that important, but what they do together seems increasingly more so.
