On the heels of their May release High Violet, dynamic indie-rockers The National show off their minimalistic side with their new track “You Were A Kindness.” This brooding track is one of the band’s few moments without percussion, leaving listeners to focus on frontman Matt Berninger’s self-doubting and anxious lyrics. Accompanied by both a piano and brass arrangement, “You Were A Kindness” fully resonates with The National’s signature melancholic warmth.

Check out this previously unreleased track below.
