Vampire Weekend – A Punk

14 01 2008

Another video from Vampire Weekend. This is for their second single, ‘A Punk’, the follow-up to ‘Mansard Roof’ which I posted a couple of months ago. Haven’t heard the album yet but look forward to doing so as I’m enjoying their Afro-Beatles type sound. This, like the previous single, has that African guitar style all over it but the keyboard instrumental bits sound like they’re straight from a  mid-period Beatles record.

The video is also lots of fun, reminding me slightly of ‘Inbetween Days’ by The Cure and was directed by Hammer & Tongs who famously made that ‘Coffee & TV’ promo for Blur and ‘Pumping On Your Stereo’.
