VAMPIRE WEEKEND Back With Two New Tracks – Here’s ‘HARMONY HALL’ And ‘2021’…

Brand new sonic impulses

24 January 2019

Wow! It’s already been almost six years since New York’s pop combo VAMPIRE WEEKEND released their excellent third LP Modern Vampires In The City. But it’s official now. The follow-up album FATHER OF THE BRIDE is finished and ready to hit the streets quite soon. To prove they mean it the band shared two new tracks today. HARMONY HALL is a lively, multi-instrumental and catchy pop song with frontman Ezra Koenig‘s pondering key line “I don’t want to live like this, but I don’t wanna die”. 2021 is a smooth piano driven semi-ballad with Koenig repeating: “where we think about me/I can wait a year but I couldn’t wait three.”
