The National ‘Lean’ The Hunger Games Catching Fire Soundtrack

627

Brooklyn band The National

 

The National sound restrained and somber on “Lean,” their new contribution to the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. The band builds a moody texture of acoustic guitars and, later, violin embellishments as frontman Matt Berninger portends doom with lyrics like, “Everybody needs a prayer and needs a friend/Everybody knows the world’s about to end.” Throughout the song’s four minutes, though, the band barely break a sweat, keeping their cool even as Berninger coos “Dying is easy” in the chorus.
