The dark side of indie music has always been made a little bit better by the presence of stalwarts The National. Now, the band have shared a video for their new release from their recent album Sleep Well Beast, the video of ‘Dark Side of the Gym’ is below and it’s poetry in motion.
Directed by Justin Peck, the choreographer at the New York City Ballet who has also worked with Sufjan Stevens, also stars in the clip alongside Patricia Delgado. As you might imagine, the video sees the two strikingly dance across a darkened gymnasium.
The new video follows the band’s triumphant new album and the clips for ‘Day I Die’, ‘I’ll Still Destroy You’ and ‘Carin At The Liquor Store’. Take a look below.
