EL VY, the new collaboration between The National’s Matt Berninger and Menomena’s Brent Knopf, makes its London debut at Camden’s Electric Ballroom for a show we know will be thick with charisma and floating on bass lines.
One is known for his direct to chest lyrics and whisky delivery, the other for his imagination spilling alternative pop. And first track Return to the Moon (Political Song for Didi Bloome to Sing, With Crescendo) doesn’t disappoint with instant chorus and Talking Heads flair.
With their debut record due this autumn on 4AD, the pair may take people by surprise with their carefree approach. But it’s on the stage where Berninger has always been so commanding, and we can’t wait to see him in a new light.
Presented by Parallel Lines.
This is an 18+ event.
