Vampire Weekend - Harmony Hall
Published: 1:00 pm, January 24, 2019Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

Praise be, Vampire Weekend are back!

After what feels like an unfairly long wait, the now-three-piece's first taster of new material has arrived, and it's nothing short of euphoric.

While the first half of their double drop, '2021', may be a low key affair - essentially a minute and a half of build up - it's 'Harmony Hall' which is the definitive main event of the band's big reveal.

A shifting slice of come-to-Jesus, arms aloft worship, it skips from duelling guitars to Songs of Praise in a bucket hat. Stamped throughout with Vampire Weekend's iconic DNA, it's also jam packed with that playful energy that's made their absence so keenly felt. Like Black Grape after rehab doing 'Greensleeves', it's big, brash but not unfamiliar with the concept of beauty either.

With a swagger and a sway, 'Harmony Hall' is Sister Act. 3: Cape Cod Goes Madferit. It's the sound of a band reaffirming their place as indie's favourite cool cousins. One of 18 new tracks that make up forthcoming full-length 'Father of the Bride', it's the sound of a feast still to come. Praise be!
