Indie-rock darlings Vampire Weekend have been blazing up the CMJ charts with their acclaimed third album, Modern Vampires Of The City, and now they’re dishing out some visuals for one of its percussion-heavy infectious bangers, “Diane Young.”
Directed by Primo Kahn, the video takes on a Last Supper-like treatment, but it’s not your average dinner party. Vampire Weekend have invited some big name musicians to the table, like Santigold, Sky Ferreira, Chromeo, Hamilton Leithauser of the Walkmen and Dave Longstreth of the Dirty Projectors among others. With a guest list like that, bizarre party antics are a given. See what kind of irrational fun the gang is having in the video for “Diane Young,” below.
