El Vy-Return To The Moon (Video)

Maybe Matt Berninger isn’t as boring as I thought he was. Perhaps it’s just my weariness with The National’s decision to repeat themselves over and over again. With his new project, El Vy, Berninger seems to be re-energized. The tandem he creates with Brent Knopf isn’t a huge departure from the bittersweet sounds of Brooklyn’s saddest hip band, but it’s enough of a change that I’ll be looking forward to the full album that comes out October 30th.

The sly wit of the lead singer is still evident here. He delivers a great line (that you don’t have to wonder about because it’s a lyric video!) where he sings, “Bought a saltwater fish from a colorblind witch cause she said she loved it. Couldnt tell her the part that would break her heart, but it loved me.”
