Have EL VY made their way onto your radar yet? They've got Brent Knopf, of Menomena and Ramona Falls, and the National frontman Matt Berninger. Their debut album Return to the Moon just dropped last week, and now they're on tour to spread the jams.
On Monday night (Nov. 2), at their first live show, EL VY treated Portland, Oregon's Doug Fir Lounge to a cover of "She Drives Me Crazy," the Fine Young Cannibals jam you've known your whole life. (Or, age-depending, since 1988, when it came out.)
EL VY's cover nailed the tones of the original and incited a big ol' sing-along. Let's see if the band makes a habit of rocking nostalgic covers for the rest of the tour, which spans North America till Nov. 21 and heads to Europe from Dec. 1 to the 13th.
