Love songs for Barack Obama

The Band The National was always guys have been aware of what they are: a Band made up of five average-looking white. The 48-year-old front man Matt Berninger this spring, said in an Interview with the "Independent". But the group is not a Boys-only Club. Some Songs were co-written Berningers wife Carin Better. In addition, The National invited Guest musicians.

On the latest Album "I Am Easy To Find" sing five women, including David Bowie's favorite bassist Gail Ann Dorsey as well as Mina Tindle and Sharon Van Etten. Berninger says he appreciated this support. "I felt a bit blocked." Finally, he is since 20 years the sole frontman of The National. His plaintive vocals makes for a lot of the Band's songs. These are all very similar so strong, that critics write from a classic The-National-Sound.

The Americans took us three albums, until they could establish themselves with their poignant, but a little pathetic pop songs. But hardly had the Alligator was "discovered" in 2005 by the crowd, broke the Band to a nearly year-long tour. Most of the concerts in the homeland and in Europe were sold out.

Meanwhile, have released The National five more albums, were awarded in a number of countries with Gold and silver, and have won the Beast of 2018, with the album "Sleep Well" is a Grammy. The musicians were often on tour, have solo projects and films.Again and again, the Band of Democrats supported the election campaigns.

So, too, Barack Obama, of The National as his favorite band, to be referred to. "Love songs are more political than anything else" is Matt Berninger convinced. Nothing is political, to want another Person to really understand. "No matter whether is a woman or a Person of a different culture."
