EL VY’s Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf have made good on their promise to deliver a video for every song on their debut album… watch ‘Sad Case/Happiness, Missouri’ and ‘It’s A Game’ videos below. Return To The Moon is out now via 4AD / Remote Control Records.
‘It’s A Game’, directed by Tom Berninger (Matt’s brother, director of the award-winning Mistaken For Strangers film and creator of all preceding EL VY videos thus far), sees Tom’s artwork time-lapsed to life, while he and Matt struggle to come up with imagery that works for both of them.
‘Sad Case/Happiness, Missouri’, filmed by Michael Brown and Ben Krall, and edited by Kelly Lyon, is a music horror video, of sorts. It captures Matt and Brent in a fight for survival, combined with live EL VY performance footage.
Pixx is the nom de guerre of 19 year-old Hannah Rodgers, a young songwriter from Chipstead, just beyond the fringes of south London where suburban sprawl starts to break in to countryside.
Inspired by the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Aphex Twin, and adopting her grandmother’s nickname, Hannah’s recording debut, Fall In, will be released digitally on 28th August 2015 via 4AD / Remote Control, with vinyl to follow. A collection of four electronic folk-infused torch songs, ‘Fall In’ is the perfect introduction to the mysterious space Pixx’s music inhabits, with a brand new video for the title track serving as an apt visual foil.
When Sunn O))) first approached Scott Walker about appearing on their 2009 album Monoliths & Dimensions, little did they know what it would actually lead to. Four years on, Scott was back with something even more enticing, collaborating on Soused, a body of work he was writing with them in mind.
Recorded in London in early 2014 and produced by Scott Walker and long-time ally Peter Walsh with the assistance of musical director Mark Warman, Soused is a 5-track, 50-minute collaborative record that cements the status of both act’s wide-reaching and otherworldly renown.
