The National recently performed High Violet track “Afraid of Everyone” on Spinner’s Interface.
“I think ‘Afraid of Everyone’ was a reaction to the temperature American, not just politics, but American culture right now,” says frontman Matt Berninger during his interview with Interface. “I think specifically it was most directly a reaction to the media and the sort of extreme ideologies. Both the right and the left have been yelling propaganda and nonsense and you just don’t know quite who to believe. It’s really uncomfortable.”
