It's part of an anti-Trump compilation which also includes songs from Franz Ferdinand and Death Cab For Cutie
EL VY have become the latest act to unveil an anti-Trump anthem as part of the ’30 days, 30 songs’ project.
The project, initiated by writer Dave Eggers, sees a different band or singer put out a new anti-Trump song every day from now until the US presidential election on November 8. All 30 songs will then be collected together into a jumbo anti-Trump compilation.
Death Cab For Cutie and Franz Ferdinand are among the bands to have already shared a song, while a previously unreleased live track by R.E.M is still to come. EL VY – the duo comprising The National’s Matt Berninger and Ramona Falls’ Brent Knopf – have written and recorded a track called ‘Are These My Jets’. Listen below.
“We’re playing together in a room, which means we’re jamming more,” he said. “But it’s not a jam record at all – the songs are much more like weird, math-y, electronic-y stuff.”
“We could probably crank out a great National record in a weekend, but none of us are interested in following up with another record that sounds like ‘Trouble Will Find Me’,” Berninger added.
