Just prior to performing at The Opera House in Toronto, Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf of EL VY sat down with Indie88’s Matt Hart to talk about the new band, as well as what’s going on with The National. Having described the new National material as “very fucking amazing” in some earlier interviews, Matt Berninger expands on that sentiment and explains why he’s so excited about the future of The National.
“These might be some of the best songs we’ve ever written. I’ve never been more juiced about some of the new stuff. It’s not like what we’ve done. I think we’re relaxing in a funny way, and we’re embracing some of the simple pleasures and hooks.”
Check out the interview and find out what else we might be hearing on the upcoming National record.
