The National release video for "Dark Side Of The Gym"

Directed by and featuring New York City Ballet Choreographer Justin Peck

The National are pleased to release the video for "Dark Side Of The Gym", directed, choreographed and starring NYC Ballet Resident Choreographer and soloist Justin Peck and executive produced by former Miami City Ballet dancer and current dance filmmaker Ezra Hurwitz. Also starring former Miami City Ballet mentor and Principal dancer, Patricia Delgado, the video finds the duo gracefully move around a balloon filled auditorium. The video premiered via New Yorker, who described it as "essentially an extended pas de deux, highly technical but low-key, intimate, and a little sexy...The song and the video read like a love letter. At the end, as the music frays and the dancing stops, the camera settles on Delgado's sorrowful, vulnerable expression." Watch the video HERE.

It's already been a big week for the band, with their critically acclaimed new album "Sleep Well Beast" receiving Grammy nominations for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Recording Package.
