Vampire Weekend, “Unbelievers”


The first taste of Vampire Weekend’s third record was premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live a few days ago, sending their hungry fans rabid with excitement.

“Unbelievers” is a small move away from the indie Afro-pop of their previous songs, and opts for the lyrically morbid- ‘We know the fire awaits unbelievers/ All of the sinners the same/ Girl, you and I will die unbelievers, bound to the tracks of the train’. Luckily, the light croon of singer Ezra Koenig and the happy, pop rhythms save it from delving too much into the darkness.
