Watch: Matt Berninger and Lauren Mayberry Swap Awkward Stories

Chvrches and National singers sit down for chat on bad shows, fame and more

If you recall back in October, while performing in San Francisco with his rock outfit The National, Matt Berninger invited Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES on stage for a performance of “I Need My Girl.”

Shortly after the two leading singers sat down for a chat for Live Nation TV. The pair drew from a number of similarities for conversation, both being lead singers of massive indie bands. For one, both Mayberry and Berninger have little musical vocabulary. When it comes to writing new music Berninger admits he doesn’t know how to connect with the writing process, and will ask his bandmates to make things sound like “wet leather” or more “slippery.”

Great music speak Matt!

As well, they touched on lighter subjects like learning how not to look like a fool on stage, how to deal with fame and butchering live performances.
