“Baby, I know dreams tend to crumble at extremes. I just thought our dream would last a little bit longer.”
Mixing well-read indie rock with joyful, Afro-pop-inspired melodies and rhythms, Vampire Weekend grew from one of the first bands to be championed by music bloggers into a chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning act that helped define the sound of indie music in the late 2000s and 2010s. After establishing the foundations of their bright, intricate style with 2008’s Vampire Weekend, the band soon became hugely successful; they’re the first indie rock act to have two consecutive albums (2010’s Contra and 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City) enter the Billboard Hot 100 at number one. With each release, Vampire Weekend’s music grew more diverse, incorporating ska, hip-hop, and ’80s pop influences that nevertheless complemented their signature style.
