Video of the Moment #2927: Vampire Weekend

The preppy, boat shoe-wearing Vampire Weekend returned last month with a new song, ‘Harmony Hall’. If I were to guess what the promo video to go with the single means, I think it’s a nod to frontman Ezra Koenig’s new-found domesticity since the birth of his son Isaiah last summer. He’s breaking eggs and looking like he’s making breakfast, a children’s favourite, pancakes, and in fun shapes, too! There’s a bright green python in this video, too, who’s not looking so scary but instead, oddly making yawning motions. Snakes are long and represent fertility and the renewal of life in many spiritual traditions. The fruit the snake slithers and ‘walks’ on represent the circle of life. If anything, it’s worth watching this video just to watch a snake yawn! ‘Father of the Bride’, the band’s fourth studio album and their first album since 2013’s ‘Modern Vampires of the City’, is expected in April on Columbia Records. It’s been a spell since I’ve written about them, but you can read our past coverage on Vampire Weekend through here.
