2006 yılında Columbia Üniversitesi’nde okuyan dört arkadaşın bir araya gelerek kurduğu Amerikalı indie rock grubu Vampire Weekend 2008 yılında, ilk albümleri olan ve aynı zamanda grubun adını taşıyan “Vampire Weekend”i yayınlayarak müzikseverlerle buluştu.

Gitar ve vokalde Ezra Koenig, davulda Chris Tomson, klavyede Rostam Batmanglij, basta ise Chris Baio yer alıyor.

Grubun bugüne kadar olan çalışmaları arasında Vampire Weekend (2008), Contra (2010) ve Modern Vampires of The City (2013) albümlerinin yanı sıra Ladies of Cambridge (2007) ve Jonathan Low (2010) olmak üzere iki de teklileri bulunuyor.

Son olarak 24 Ocak 2019 tarihinde “Harmony Hall/2021” ismini taşıyan teklisi yayınlanan Vampire Weekend’i keşfetmeniz için grubun en güzel 10 şarkısını sizler için seçtik.

1) Campus

Then I see you
You’re walking across the campus
Foolproof face, you’re studying romances
How am I supposed to pretend
I never want to see you again?

2) Step

I just ignored all the tales of a past life
Stale conversation deserves but a bread knife

And punks who would laugh
When they saw us together
Well they didn’t know
How to dress for the weather

3) Diane Young

Nobody knows what the future holds on
Said it’s bad enough just getting old
Live my life, they say it’s too fast
You know I love the past, ’cause I hate suspense

4) Unbelievers

I’m not excited
But should I be
Is this the fate that half of the world has planned for me?
I know I love you
And you love the sea
What holy water contains a little drop, little drop for me?
5) Taxi Cab
I remember,
Remember well,
But if I’ve forgotten,
Could you tell,
In the shadow of your first attack,
I was questioning and looking back,
You said baby we don’t speak of that,
Like a real aristocrat
6) Harmony Hall
Thought that I was free
From all that questioning
But every time a problem ends
Another one begins
7) Oxford Comma
Why would you speak to me that way
Especially when I always said that I
Haven’t got the words for you
All your diction dripping with disdain
Through the pain
I always tell the truth
8) Walcott
Walcott, don’t you know that it’s insane?
Don’t you want to get out of Cape Cod, out of Cape Cod tonight?
9) Everlasting Arms
I took your council and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, lead me to myself
Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never gonna understand, never understand
10) A-Punk
I saw Johanna down in the subway
She took an apartment in Washington heights
Half of the ring lies here with me
But the other half’s at the bottom of the sea
