WATCH: EL VY “Need A Friend,” Cruise Around Venice Harassing Each Other
Probably not the best way to make friends, but okay.
EL VY, the collaborative project between The National‘s Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf of Menomena, have given us enough of a sense of what they’re all about to know that this is a looser, easier thing they’ve got going. Today, the pair dropped a video for “Need A Friend,” the fifth (!) single from their forthcoming Return to the Moon. With its grainy, warped footage and block-text lyric subtitles, the video follows in the same style as “Paul is Alive” and “I’m the Man to Be.” You can check it out for yourself below.
Return to the Moon is out October 30 via 4AD.
