Vampire Weekend cover Post Malone’s ‘Sunflower’ in the Live Lounge

The band also performed ‘Harmony Hall’ as part of their second radio visit of the week.

Not content with taking to BBC Radio 6 Music to perform some new tracks yesterday, Vampire Weekend have now visited BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge too.

Having already played their recent Steve Lacy-collab ‘Sunflower’, this time, they put a different spin on things, choosing to cover Post Malone and Swae Lee’s track of the name (genius, huh?) instead.

The band also ran through a live rendition of ‘Harmony Hall’ - you can listen to their whole Live Lounge session right here.
