The National Give Orchestral Performance Of 'Oblivions' On 'Fallon': Watch

Before hitting the road for an extensive tour, The National visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and treated the audience to a performance of "Oblivions" off their new album, I Am Easy to Find.

The five-piece band swelled to nearly 30 people as it recruited the help of vocalist Mina Tindle and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, whom are featured on the recorded version of the song, as well as a string section, second percussionist, and a few other musicians. Even with so many people on stage, the indie rockers still managed to give an intimate, thoughtful performance.
