Single Serving: EL VY – I’m The Man To Be

EL VY

EL VY, the new collaborative project of the National’s Matt Berninger and Menomena’ Brent Knopf, is turning out to be even weirder than we anticipated – and it’s glorious.

Today they’ve released the video for the album’s second single “I’m The Man To Be.” The video is fittingly off-kilter and is directed by Tom Berninger (Matt’s brother and the director of the documentary Mistaken for Strangers). Basically, it features Berninger dancing like a goon in alleys, boardwalks and other random locales. Meanwhile, the song itself is from the perspective of a “self aggrandizing rocker alone in a hotel room.”

You can pre-order the LP now from 4AD and come with an autographed poster by the duo (while supplies last).
