Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend Biography

Vampire Weekend

With infectious choruses, dancing lyrics and huge along-sing along hooks, Vampire Weekend’s self titled debut album was an instant favourite in the indie clubs and on the rock stations.

Hailing from New York, the four-piece met at university. After a succession of side projects and collaborations (which saw lead singer Ezra Koenig touring African music with The Dirty Projectors) the lads finally formed Vampire Weekend.

Their debut, released in 2008, featured the enormous single A-Punk that would help define the band. Oxford Comma, Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa & Mansard Roof were the releases that followed and, along with pirouetting live performances, Vampire Weekend began to take their music around the world.

Since then, they’ve released Contra (2010) and Modern Vampires Of The City (2013) honing their deft mix of indie rock and world music rhythms, while pushing the envelope sonically.
