Watch Vampire Weekend Perform New Songs at SXSW

With Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires of the City coming on May 7, the group had to give Austin a little taste of what’s to come. They performed some new material at SXSW, and while concert footage is always a tease, it gives you a pretty good idea of the direction. Judging by these two tracks, it seems Vampire Weekend hasn’t lost any of that energetic, bright, and extremely catchy craftsmanship.

Watch “Yah Hey” above and “Diane Young” below.
