The National have released the video for ‘I’ll Still Destroy You’, from their most recent album Sleep Well Beast, The video was directed by Allan Sigurðsson and Icelandic performance and installation artist Ragnar Kjartansson. Watch it below!
Ragnar, who also appears in the video, collaborated with The National for A Lot Of Sorrow which saw the band play their song ‘Sorrow’ for six hours in front of a live audience at MOMA’s PS1.
‘I’ll Still Destroy You’ was filmed in Copenhagen, Denmark during the Aaron and Bryce Dessner created HAVEN Festival. It was shot in one hour at Dope & Korruption, a pop-up bar created by Ragnar offering arancini, chocolate truffles, prosecco, classical music and a sailor striptease. During the video shoot the bar was shut down by Danish security officials and destroyed the day after.
The band tour across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in February & March 2018. See below for further info and ticket details.
