Whilst I presume that the majority of you are already huge Vampire Weekend fans (if not you should be) the band have some new music coming your way. Whilst the new single Diane Young is available now, you have to wait for their new album 'Modern Vampire Of The City' to come out on May 13th (May 7th for any readers from the US). Just in time for summer, because if we're being honest, Vampire Weekend sound far better listened to whilst basking in the sun. It's been a massive four years since their last album 'Contra', and whilst four years is a long time, believe me 'Diane Young' is worth the wait. It has the potential to be the new 'A Punk' or 'Cousins', whilst being sufficiently different from their earlier sound it will no doubt be one of the soundtracks for summer 2013. At just 2 minutes 44 seconds of sheer brilliance it is definitely worth listening to. For those who haven't listened to the song yet it combines the use of grungy guitar and electronic deluges, the perfect amount of each to make the song work.
