"I certainly feel a kinship with The National. I adore their music and I adore them personally. I think Matt Berninger is one of my favourite lyricists. His lyrics have a sort of self-effacing, melancholy, black humour thing going on. But are also really poignant, with these images that really resonate, that a lot of people can relate to. That line from the song England is my favourite: Famous angels never come through England."

Matt Berninger, The National on the song “Sorrow”
I feel like we have to keep our eyes on the road. Being nostalgic is like taking an offramp and getting a sandwich - and then you get back on the highway. I don’t want to be spending the rest of my life at the gas station.
