Matt Berninger of the National and Brent Knopf of Menomena and Ramona Falls have been friends since before their respective bands found success. Years later, the two are collaborating in EL VY and putting out their debut, Return To The Moon, this Friday. The video for “Need A Friend” is the fourth in a series of lyric/music videos created by Berninger’s brother Tom. This one features Matt exploring his childhood home of Cincinnati via bicycle, plus footage of the band playing live with Andy Stack of Wye Oak on drums and Matt Sheehy of Lost Lander on bass. Turns out Matt Berninger is very needy. Watch the video below.
Return To The Moon is out 10/30 on 4AD.
