Vampire Weekend paid a visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and boldly covered one of the year’s best songs: Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” It’ll probably be either the greatest or the worst thing you hear today—it all depends on how you feel about falsettos.
Coming from a man with an obvious affinity for hip-hop, it’s not surprising to hear Koenig pull off T.I.’s verse in the ubiquitous summer jam—even if he does mumble a bit. Does Koening have a future in R&B, or is everyone kidding themselves? Is there a NSFW video coming soon? While the cover may make you laugh at first, it’s a solid effort by Vampire Weekend. That falsetto though!
