In retrospect, the first official leak from the new Vampire Weekend album Contra, ‘Horchata’ was not really as exciting as it could have been. ‘Cousins’ is a different beast altogether: frantic, fun and frolicsome, like a younger brother of ‘A-Punk’ which is fitting as both video share the same director in Garth Jennings of Hammer & Tongs. The Cousins’ video is equally as fun-filled.
Contra is released in early January. Thanks to The Noises in Our Heads for the original Vimeo link.
