Vampire Weekend have shared a video for recent single ‘Harmony Hall’. The track is the first preview of new album ‘Father Of The Bride’, shared last month along with the album’s announcement and another new song, ‘2021’.
The track now has a new video and, well, it’s a real trip. In line with the track’s artwork, the video features a snake, but also Ezra Koenig cooking up some pancakes, and he and his bandmates dancing among a load of candles. Wholesome!
In our review of ‘Harmony Hall’, we said: “Of all the experimentation five and a half years could’ve brought for Vampire Weekend, ‘Harmony Hall’ simply sees them refining, expanding their palate subtly and gorgeously, and putting a smacking big grin on everyone’s weary, worn January faces.”
The band are set to take ‘Father Of The Bride’ on a world tour across this year. View the dates and watch the ‘Harmony Hall’ video below.
