Live Event Reportage

The National is an American indie rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, formed in 1999.

Currently based in Brooklyn, the band consists of Matt Berninger (vocals), Aaron Dessner (guitar, keyboards), Bryce Dessner (guitar), Scott Devendorf (bass) and Bryan Devendorf (drums).

The National has been compared to Joy Division, Leonard Cohen, Interpol, Wilco, Depeche Mode, U2 and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

The band’s lyrics have been described as “dark, melancholy and difficult to interpret”.

I had the chance to shoot The National live performance at Vasto Siren Festival (Italy, July 2014).
