Watch: The National’s video for cover of Mercury Rev’s ‘Holes’ sees Matt Berninger visiting the beach

Berninger covers Mercury Rev for Planned Parenthood

The National have shared a video for a new cover of Mercury Rev’s “Holes,” which frontman Matt Berninger recorded for the 7-inches for Planned Parenthood series, Vol.2-Pt.2.

Berninger’s take on the Deserter’s Songs track is far more somber the original, as he delicately delivers hit lines like, “Holes, dug by little moles, angry jealous,” atop an acoustic guitar. The accompanying clip, which was directed by Chris Sgroi, sees Berninger recording the track as clips of him on a bike, standing on a foggy beach, and staring at the ocean flash on screen.
