When The National did Roskilde Festival in 2007, their emotional and mournful rock was still a well-kept secret among the chosen few. Their stock kept going up after this concert and a mutual, loving relationship between Denmark and the Brooklyn-based band emerged.

In 2013 they take Roskilde Festival with a brand new record, Trouble Will Find Me, in their backpack – several prior works, like Boxer and Alligator, are already considered contemporary classics.

The National know how to depict modern life at its most despairing. Baritone Matt Berninger is a lyricist and singer who bears comparison to the likes of Leonard Cohen and Morrissey.

Label: 4AD / Playground
