Biography

Graduating from Columbia University in 2006, early demos given away to friends and fans soon had music blogs talking about a new form of worldly melodic indie pop emanating from New York in the shape of Vampire Weekend. Signing to XL Recordings, the band defined their sound as Upper West Side Soweto and released debut album 'Vampire Weekend' (2008) to critical acclaim. Buoyed by the chirpy, summer anthems 'A-Punk', 'Oxford Comma' and 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa', their debut was soon recognised as one of the biggest albums of the year. The shimmering melodies continued on second album 'Contra' (2010) which shot to straight to the top of the US charts on its first week of release. Led by the single 'Cousins', it was partly recorded in Mexico City, contains several references to Joe Strummer and samples M.I.A.. Their third studio album 'Modern Vampires of the City' arrived in 2013 and marked a shift in style for the band as they further incorporated the use of acoustic guitar, piano and organ sounds. Following the end of the Modern Vampires tour in 2014, the band had a brief hiatus before multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij parted ways from the band in 2016.

Six years on from their last album, Vampire Weekend announced the title of their fourth studio album as 'Father of the Bride' for 2019, featuring tracks 'Harmony Hall' and '2021' released as a double single. Batmanglij returned to contribute to the album which also features guest vocals for the first time in the band's career.
