Artist: The National
Title: Trouble Will Find Me
Genre: Indie / Alternative
Release Date: 20th May 13
Label: 4AD Records


Album Review

The emotive and hypnotic NYC troupe, THE NATIONAL, return with ‘Trouble Will Find Me’. ‘High Violet’, their predecessor, was a huge success and highly acclaimed by many critics alike. However, ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ is a stand-alone show, a smaller sound compared to the explosive ‘High Violet’ but the menace and the existential melancholia seethes underneath the belly of these new songs.

So, Matt Berninger and his gang really pull the strings in this record, his deep, baritone vocals are arresting as ever and the lyrics are a perfect lonely cocktail of tears, wisdom, beauty, anger and love. ‘I Should Live In Salt’ is a personal portrayal of a relationship between he and his brother; an affective opening that grips with a taut yet reflective grasp. ‘Sea of Love’, the first single from the album has a vibrant thump, perhaps the most guitar-ridden song off the whole album whereas the sensitive and poignant songs like ‘Heavenfaced’, ‘I Need My Girl’ and ‘Humiliation’ really switch on the goose bumps. 

Yes, this is at times a downbeat record but it’s irrefutably enigmatic and wonderful; you can’t dismiss the soul in The National which can only be best described by a lyric taken from the penultimate song on the album, ‘Pink Rabbits’ – “I was a television version of a person with a broken heart”. This bittersweet piece of perfection must be heard! It’s an album so dynamic that it has the power to gently numb your very senses with an exquisite grace; it will live within you like a great poem or favourite phrase.
