"My life in The National is really about my relationship to my brother. We’re twins….The National is a place that we really thrive together, and that relationship is kind of fundamental, the most fundamental thing. I’m basically a born collaborator being a twin, and if you look at pretty much all of this music you can see it in that light." — Bryce Dessner
Happy Birthday to Bryce and Aaron Dessner! :)
My mum asked me the date today and I looked at her with such disdain and said, “it’s obviously the 23rd” but then I forgot she probably doesn’t have the twins birthday programmed into her brain.
Happy 38th Birthday, Aaron and Bryce Dessner— you handsome sons of bitches.
