Yesterday we brought you Vampire Weekend‘s “Diane Young” — a slightly different twist (though still inventively awesome) on what we’ve come to expect from the New York outfit. Today, we feature another new song called “Step”, which should sound more familiar to the ears of those longtime VW fans, as it does hearken back more to both the Contra and self-titled LPs days. If these two songs are any indication of the rest of their forthcoming album, Modern Vampires Of The City, then we’re in for quite a good collection of forward-thinking music that’s still somewhat grounded in Vampire’s successful tradition. Listen to the track and also peep its official lyric video below.
When you do the same thing everyday, i.e. drag yourself out of bed and into work, it’s becomes way too easy to completely transform into a zombie. Want some “How To Kill A Zombie” advice that you probably haven’t heard before?…..Slice that mundane shit with a ninja sword and put a little Indie Dojo up in your life. It’s a life saver at the click of a button…
We Were Lovers
To The End
Vampire Weekend will make their triumphant return on May 7th when they release their third album, Modern Vampires Of The City. Though that moment’s still more than a month away, the New York band has revealed one of its new tracks called “Diane Young”. It’s hyper, bouncy, overflowing with this kind of pure power-pop that never seems to settle down or take a breath — and it’s pretty damn good. It’s still very much Vampire Weekend territory, but updated if that makes any sense. It’s more refined, but also more creative. Also, don’t be surprised to hear Mr. Ezra Koenig unleash some “old soul” depth, too! Tune in.
