The National – Think You Can Wait

The National have come up with another brooding indie pop gem. ‘Think You Can Wait’ will feature on the soundtrack of Win Win, the latest effort from Tom McCarthy whose previous films include The Visitor and the brilliant The Station Agent.

‘Think You Can Wait’ is inspired by the film and is “about very normal and good people trying to do their best and the struggle to be good” according to vocalist Matt Berninger.

The track features fellow Brooklyn, New Yorker Sharon van Etten whose ethereal backing vocals work perfectly with Berninger’s sombre croon and accompanied by the steady swell of strings and guitar give the track a dramatic beauty.

The song is below as is the trailer for Win Win.

  1. Beautiful, brilliant.

  2. The song is amazing. I don’t think The National can release a bad song.
