The duo that is Matt Berninger (The National) and Brent Knopf (Ramona Falls and Menomena) have shared another track from their forthcoming LP.
This is the fifth track they’ve shared off their debut album, Return to the Moon (Oct. 30th). The lyric video that accompanies, “Need a Friend” was directed by Matt’s brother, Tom Berninger,the man responsible for one of the most intriguing music documentaries ever made. This video is decidedly lo-fi, with fuzzed-out shots of Berninger and Knopf rehearsing, riding bikes, brushing their teeth and just generally being human beings. But it fits, and the track has a blitzed-out pop feel that works really well with Berninger’s vocals.
