EL VY is the collaboration between longtime friends Matt Berninger (The National) and Brent Knopf (Ramona Falls, Menomena). After years of sending musical ideas to each other, they decided to finally get together and create a record. Just last month, the album was finally released. Return To The Moon blends Berninger’s dark, yet humourous, lyrical stories told in his signature baritone delivery, along with Knopf’s playful songwriting and imaginative production.
This week they were in town for a show at The Opera House. We crashed their soundcheck and taped their performance of “Return To The Moon”, the title track off their debut album.
