Listen: Vampire Weekend Officially Release Two Brand-New Songs

CHECK OUT THE LATEST
US indie stars Vampire Weekend have unveiled two tasty new samples from their forthcoming album, Modern Vampires Of The City – Step and Diane Young are now available in studio-quality streaming form for your listening pleasure.
Diane Young had its debut a few days ago at SXSW and is the first single to be listed from the record – it’s a typically bombastic and quirky track – while Step, previously unheard, is a bit off a toned-down affair. The band, who were on our shores at the start of the year as part of Big Day Out, have been premiering tracks from Modern Vampires for a while now, even dropping new track Arms while in Sydney.
The videos for the new tracks are worth checkin’ out too. While not fully fledged music videos per se, the clip for Diane Young is kind of hypnotic, featuring a car on fire in slow-mo with what appears to be the Brooklyn Bridge in the background. Step is your more standard lyric vid, with large block letter font plastered throughout.
Modern Vampires Of The City is set for release locally on Friday, 3rd May. The track list for the record is below the clips. Enjoy!
