The band’s been silent for the last couple of years, but this morning, my colleague Drew e-mailed me a link to the video below, the first single off Vampire Weekend’s forthcoming album, Modern Vampires of the City (oy! Enough with the vampire bullshit already!)
A striking homage to the opening credit sequence of Woody Allen’s “Manhattan,” “Step” is another great, visual love-letter to the band’s native New York City. The Astor Place big glass box of black, sun-obfuscating death even makes a cameo. Enjoy.
