LISTEN: The National’s Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf Announce EL VY

Brand new music from The National's Matt Berninger drops

Everyone’s favourite indie crooner Matt Berninger (The National) has started a new project with Menomena’s Brent Knopf. The band will be known as EL VY (the plural of Elvis apparently) and will be releasing their debut album Return to the Moon on October 30th. They’ve also given us the title track on the album and it doesn’t disappoint. Listen above.

This record is more autobiographical than anything else I’ve written, but the details aren’t true,” “…It’s written in the voices of a few invented characters, composites of different people—myself, my wife, and other people I was thinking about.” – Matt Berninger
