The National share music video for ‘Dark Side Of The Gym’
The National have shared a highly emotive music video for track ‘Dark Side Of The Gym’ off of their epic recent album ‘Sleep Well Beast’, and look set to give fans an awesome experience when they head down under for their 2018 Australian tour.
The clip was directed, choreographed and stars NYC Ballet Resident Choreographer and soloist Justin Peck, co-stars Patricia Delgado, and is executive produced by former Miami City Ballet dancer and current dance filmmaker Ezra Hurwitz.
The video is successful in being just as pure and striking as the song itself. ‘Dark Side Of The Gym’ shows the duo gracefully dancing through a balloon-filled auditorium, giving the video the same light, floating feeling as the song. The dance is intimate and simply stunning, with the dancers often demonstrating highly technical moves in a flawless and effortless way. The dance and set-up works perfectly with the feel of the wholesome love song.
Off the success of the band’s critically acclaimed seventh studio album Sleep Well Beast, (as shown by their recent Grammy nominations for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Recording Package) The National are bringing their new album tour to our shores in February and March next year.
It will be the first time the band has played in Australia since 2014, playing shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. Full dates and ticketing details below.
