    Super groups are becoming sort of a trend this year; we've seen releases from Wavves x
    Cloud Nothings
    , BADBADNOTGOOD and Ghostface Killah, and an upcoming Big Boi and Phantogram project set to release later this year as well. The latest collaborative effort we're hearing is a joint release from The National's Matt Berninger and Menomena's Brent Knopf under the name EL VY. Their debut album Return to the Moon is out later this year on 4AD. They have just shared their first single, title track "Return To The Moon," in preparation for the full-length release.

    The track equally features both musicians' styles, containing The National frontman's signature baritone bellows layered over a danceable and unexpectedly funky track. Combining these two unexpected elements is surprisingly refreshing, as it develops into a rather melancholic yet upbeat song, as Berninger's symbolic and seemingly nonsensical lyrics borrow influence of songwriters like Pavement's Steve Malkmus.

    Check out "Return to the Moon (Political Song For Didi Bloom To Sing, With Crescendo)" below:
