CURRENT: EL VY – “Return To The Moon (Political Song For Didi Bloome To Sing, With Crescendo)”

It’s hard to discuss EL VY without discussing the parts that make up the duo. Both the National and Menomena are known commodities at this point, with Matt Berninger and Brett Knopf being key contributors to both bands’ successes. That the two have now teamed up for an album (Return To The Moon, out October 30 via 4AD) and world tour seems downright unfair. We certainly are spoiled.

And “Return To The Moon” doesn’t disappoint. It adheres to both artist’s strengths, with Berninger pinned against Knopf’s upbeat, fluid musicality. While the National frontman adds a dose of melancholy to the track, he at least sounds free.
