New Vampire Weekend Video, "Cousins"
Well, if this track and the previously-released "Horchata," are any indication, we're in for quite a time when Contra comes out. "Cousins," the first official single off of Vampire Weekend's second album, is a crazed mix of California pop and garage punk. The video below actually does a great job of reflecting this fact, with continuous cuts and randomness throughout. Needless to say, I'm excited. And you should be too. Check it out below, and stay tuned for Vampire Weekend's Contra, out January 12th via XL.
