Vampire Weekend’s new long-awaited album has been out for a few weeks now, and the band have just shared a dreamy new clip for its cut ‘This Life’.
Featuring Ezra himself, as well as Danielle Haim and Ariel Rechtshaid, along with their friendly Palm Springs driver Wade, the clip may be black and white, but it oozes that sense of care-free, Californian warmth that looks so darned appealing in music videos. Nice work, everyone.
The band’s fourth album ‘Father of the Bride’ is out now and they’ve got a slew of UK shows planned for later this year. Check out their planned headline shows, and watch the video for ‘This Life’, below.
