Video: The National – “Graceless”

The National show off a usually concealed playfulness in their latest video for “Graceless,” which features the band shotgunning beers, jumping into a swimming pool outfitted in full tuxes and engaging in other shenanigans. It’s an interesting choice for a song that so strongly embodies the band’s somber ballad-esque sound, but it’s fun opportunity for fans to see a different side to the rockers. Plus, that slip-n-slide looks awesome, right? Watch them goof off above.
