Nov 24, 2015 The National Bookmark and Share

EL VY (the project of The National’s frontman Matt Berninger and former Menomena member Brent Knopf, who also records as Ramona Falls) released their excellent debut album, Return to the Moon, at the end of October via 4AD. Now they have shared a video for “No Time to Crank the Sun.” As with all of EL VY’s videos thus far, Matt’s brother Tom Berninger directed the clip. The black & white video shows the behind-the-scenes as EL VY participate in various promotional opportunities (interviews, late night TV appearances, radio sessions), except that it’s all speeded up so you can get a feel of the craziness of it all. Check it out below (followed by their tour dates) and don’t forget that EL VY are on the cover of our current print issue.

Previously EL VY has shared lyric videos for “Return to the Moon (Political Song for Didi Bloome to Sing, With Crescendo),” “I’m the Man to Be,” “Paul Is Alive,” “Silent Ivy Hotel,” and “Need a Friend.” Make sure to read our review of Return to the Moon.
