EL VY is a new project from Matt Berninger of The National and Brent Knopf of Ramona Falls (and formerly Menomena). The two met in 2003 when their bands played on the same bill, and when you see them in a room together, it's clear their musical partnership was preceded by many years of friendship.
Berninger and Knopf created the songs on EL VY's debut by sending ideas back and forth for more than a year. They finally made their live debut with a full band on KCRW a couple weeks ago, the same day their debut album (Return To The Moon) came out.
