The National's Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf of Menomena have joined up again as EL VY for a new anti-Trump single called "Are These My Jets?".

This is the latest instalment of the 30 Days, 30 Songs project, which has featured new political music from Death Cab For Cutie and Franz Ferdinand.

There's also a new game to go alongside the weirdly triumphant track.

Berninger says of the track:

"This is a song about walrus penis jewellery, which is a real thing. My sister, Rachel, was given some by a Canadian bush pilot when she worked for Alaska Airlines in the ’90s. With regard to the game, we called our colleagues, Sodman and Solimine, and said, 'We’d like a cathartic interactive experience. We’d also like to shoot bluebirds and meat with a sniff blaster'. They asked us, 'What for?' Somebody said, 'It’s time to start healing'."

EL VY released their debut record Return To The Moon last October.
