The National T-Shirt
Thank you to The National for this exclusive artwork, designed and donated by the band.
the National emerged from Brooklyn in the early 2000s amidst a garage rock revival. They distinguished themselves by drawing from a wider set of influences. Merging elements of alternative country-rock, Americana, and chamber pop as well as post-punk into their moody, crafted indie rock, their earliest albums won a dedicated fan base and critical praise before they made an impact on the charts with their fourth LP, 2007's Boxer. They embraced a more expansive, orchestral sound behind the literate lyrics and brooding vocals of frontman Matt Berninger. An album-oriented band that had yet to land on the Hot 100, the National catapulted into the Top Three of the album charts in multiple countries with 2010's High Violet. They remained a Top Three act throughout the decade, which included the still more expansive, Grammy-winning Sleep Well Beast from 2017 and 2019's chart-topping 'I Am Easy to Find.'
