Vampire Weekend – Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa video

They certainly didn’t waste any time making another video. This one is directed by Richard Ayoade again and it sort of shows, the ‘horror’ elements of the video and the cheesy effects used throughout is reminiscent of Darth Marenghi’s Darkplace. The video sees the Vampire Weekend boys being converted to goths by a mysterious flame haired social reject. Maybe this is the explaination for such an upbeat band having such a dark sounding name? Perhaps the second album will feature some angsty punk pop stylings?

The rise and rise of Vampire Weekend over the past seven months has been really impressive from a commercial point of view. And unlike other ‘buzz artists they are actually quite good and deserve all the praise and hype they’ve received so far. I can see them making it mainstream big with their second album, which (presuming they stay faithful to that afrobeat sound) would be excellent for the charts.
