London Gigs: 7-13 December 2015

Gig Of The Week

A mini superband of sorts, EL VY’s line-up consists of Matt Berninger of The National and Brent Knopf, of Ramona Falls, and previously of Menomena. Years in the making, their debut album, Return To the Moon, dropped at the end of October and was instantly addictive. Full of the best bits of the work they’re better known for; Berninger’s gravely voice is loosened up by Knopf’s lighter, more melodic influence. They’ll be joined by a drummer and bassist for their two shows this week, on Wednesday and Thursday, at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.
