El VY continue to remind us they were one of the bands of 2015 as they continue to put out a video for each song from their album ‘Return to the Moon‘.
EL VY is the combination of The National frontman, Matt Berninger and Menomena and Ramona Falls founder Brent Knopf. The pair have been turning heads with this project as we’re treated to sun-soaked tunes, something that’s not normally heard of from Matt Berninger when with The National, who put out more intense and heavier stuff, such as Sea of Love or Abel.
The National released a documentary, filmed by Matt’s brother, Tom Berninger, following the band on the road while they were touring their critically aclaimed album ‘High Violet‘. The documentary, ‘Mistaken For Strangers‘ was regarded as a brilliant insight into not just the band but into the mind of Tom Berninger too.
The Berninger brothers have teamed up again with Tom directing the video for ‘It’s A Game‘. The other video released is ‘Sad Case/Happiness, Missouri‘ and you can watch both videos below.
‘Return to the Moon‘ is available on all platforms now.
