Vampire Weekend

Describing their sound as "Upper West Side Soweto," New York City's Vampire Weekend mix preppy, well-read indie rock with joyful, Afro-pop-inspired melodies and rhythms. Ezra Koenig, Chris Baio, Rostam Batmanglij, and Chris Tomson formed the band early in 2006, when they were finishing up their studies at Columbia University. Taking their name from a movie Koenig made during his freshman year, the band started out by playing gigs at the university's literary societies and at parties. Word spread about Vampire Weekend's unique sound and lyrics ("Oxford Comma," one of the band's earliest songs, referred to comma use in a list of three items), buoyed by the band's self-released EPs, which they recorded in locations spanning from their Columbia dorm rooms to a family barn. The buzz around Vampire Weekend reached a peak in 2007: that summer, the band embarked on its biggest tour yet, made several appearances at that year's CMJ Music Marathon, and signed with XL Records that fall. The Mansard Roof EP was Vampire Weekend's debut release for the label, followed by their self-titled first album early in 2008. Debuting within the Top 20 of both the American and U.K. album charts, the eponymous record proved to be one of the year's most popular indie releases. Vampire Weekend celebrated its success by hitting the road for the better part of two years, and keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij gathered additional accolades by releasing an album with Discovery, his electro side project with Ra Ra Riot's Wes Miles. Amidst this flurry of activity, Vampire Weekend found time to return to the studio for the creation of Contra, which arrived in early 2010. Late in 2011, the band returned to the studio to work on its third album. As sessions progressed, the group worked with Ariel Rechtshaid in his home studio; he co-produced the album with Batmanglij. Early in 2013, Vampire Weekend played a couple of songs from the album, "Diane Young" and "Ya Hey," at that year's SXSW festival. Modern Vampires of the City was released that May. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

A punk. That's gotta be there #1
Three times as many likes as NightCore. ^~^ HA!
Rossegut you're so right! The Naked and Famous totally fits them. NOT modest mouse.
@Rossegut u are so right I thought I was the only one that thought that lmfao
The similar artists list is bullshit. I'd keep Phoenix and Two Door Cinema Club, but get rid of Modest Mouse, The Strokes, and Arctic Monkeys (wtf? they aren't bad, but they're not similar to VW). Substitute Ra Ra Riot, Foster The People, and The Naked and Famous in for them.
I'll be honest, I dislike their new album. It's messing up my V. Weekend Indie Rock station
Step brothers! Lol
This song sucks
Damn I love this band they are so f**king amazing it's not a joke because they have been with me since my freshman year of college my roommate and business partner was the first one to show them to me and let me explain why I say my business partner because we actually had to sell drugs to finance the purchasing of our apartment and smoked some of our product to because we both became pretty big stoners our freshman year of college and we had to be able to pay for the rent somehow but neither of

wtf is this s**t @ eren
If you read this you will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. If you read this you will die in two days. Unless you post this on five songs. 143 mins. When you are done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. It actually works!
Ezra sings like he has an accent!

I'll be half asleep on the floor of a high school gym, thinking of you and wondering if anyone else could begin to listen.
Has nothing to do with being preppy! Its music for intelligent thinkers, that I don't think put themselves in any category
Gotta love being preppy!! ��
Horchata is literally the best song ever made…serious l y .
Their intelligence is very attractive
