Vampire Weekend 2
Close your eyes and go to your happy place.
Imagine beats and wayward riffs taking away your troubles, feel your toes dance and indulge in some frantic air-drumming. Feels good doesn’t it? You’ve just had a taste of Vampire Weekend.
These baby-faced New Yorkers were voted ‘The Year’s Best New Band’ in 2008 by Spin magazine and their latest album Contra got them their first number one in the US. Their single ‘Jonathan Low’ may have appeared in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse but refreshingly, Vampire Weekend are not a group who take themselves too seriously. See their video for ‘Holiday’ if you don’t believe us. If you haven’t jumped around frantically on a dancefloor to the single ‘A-Punk’ then we hope at least you’ve done it justice on ‘Guitar Hero 5’. Forget eating a doughnut without licking your lips; sink your teeth into Vampire Weekend live and try not to sing along. We dare you.
