New Vampire Weekend song!

5 Oct

Vampire Weekend have certainly been building up the anticipation for their new record nicely. First we had that weird viral campaign that got every one talking (the Polaroid of the girl), and now they have given us a very early sneak peak of the album in the form of ‘Horchata’. This is the album’s opening track and it is available to hear and download for a limited time from this website…

It is a cool song with some interesting instrumentation and typical witty lyrics about an obscure drink, winter coats and a sidewalk. It has a synth that reminds me of the band’s side project ‘Discovery’ and a drum machine that gives the song a pounding beat. It definitely feels different to anything on their debut album, although it still sounds very much like the Vampire Weekend we love. I can’t wait to hear the whole record now.
