April 19, 2011 Blog, Blurbs

Ohio indie rock band The National have written a new song, “Exile Vilify”, and it will be part of video game, Portal 2‘s soundtrack.

This National track comes from the videogame Portal 2’s soundtrack. (Thanks for the tip, Christian.) According to a spokesperson from the band’s publishing label, Matt Berninger & Co.’s “raw and emotive music evokes the same visceral reactions from its listeners that Portal does from its players.” We’re entering different emotional terrain than “Pac-Man Fever”.
