KEXP Presents: EL VY

By Janice Headley  |  KEXP-FM

What a fantastic way to send off the KEXP Live Room at our Dexter/Denny studios. When the members of EL VY arrived at the station in matching polka-dot shirts, we thought they looked cool, but once they stepped into the same room as our studio’s twinkling lights, we realized how special their customized camouflage was.

EL VY isn’t ordinarily one to sink into the background: This debut collaboration between The National frontman Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf of Ramona Falls (and formerly of Menomena) is a stand-out of 2015.

  • “Need A Friend”
