Images & Words: Matt Berninger, “Walking on a String” (f/ Phoebe Bridgers)

Matt Berninger
“Walking on a String” (f/ Phoebe Bridgers)
Between Two Ferns: The Movie (out now on Dead Oceans)

It’s easy to imagine a young Phoebe Bridgers growing up on the angsty lyrics and the gravely delivery of the National’s Matt Berninger. And unsurprisingly, the duo make for a knockout combination on this gentle number from the 48 year-old’s upcoming debut solo LP. I prefer the alternate version, which features Bridgers vocally more, but both pack a subtly devastating hammer, as they consider the difficult task of being in love with someone who never quite makes you feel at ease.
