Vampire Weekend – Diane Young/Step


Vampire Weekend has officially released not one but TWO songs off of their third album: Modern Vampires In The City. The upbeat, drum-n-Elvis infused tune ‘Diane Young’ and the calming, regal-n-royal inspired ‘Step’ are both refreshing in their own unique ways. Check out each track below.

Hi friends, Alex here. I’m a musician, writer and music enthusiast/blogger currently living a fast-paced, music-centric life in NYC. I spent four years at the University of Miami (FL) studying Advertising, Marketing, Art and Music. Growing up, my love of all things music became so overwhelmingly evident that I began taking piano and drum lessons and eventually picked up the guitar as well. I must also admit, I have a hell of a record collection and could probably out-knowledge your parents in Beatles or Miles Davis trivia any day of the week. While I love the oldies, there is nothing I enjoy more than sharing new jams with new people – hence how I ended up on TNJ today. Over the years, I’ve worked as a piano and music theory teacher, and throughout my time in college I worked at music marketing agencies and media firms in NYC, focusing primarily on artist promotions and brand development. I currently hold a gig as a Creative/Copywriter at an experiential agency in Lower Manhattan that caters to a series of popular music and television networks (MTV, VH1, BET, Showtime, FX, AMC, CBS etc.), as well as some of the countries largest music festivals (SXSW, Lollapalooza, MixTape and more.)
