The band i'm talking about is Vampire Weekend and the song is Giving up the gun from the album "Contra". A few weeks ago the song was "ripe clip of the week" on Chanel V and since then it's been on my mind. I don't really have a huge intrest in Vampire Weekend but there is something about this song that has me hooked! Ezra Koenig's voice works well with this Indie bands sound, its just so pretty and relaxing but catchy at the same time.
The music video for Giving up the gun is clever and creative. It is the band playing at an indoor tennis match. A lady in red plays against a number of people untill she eventually plays a version of herself. If you look closely you can spot quite a few famous people in the video including Joe Jonas, Lil Jon and Jake Gyllenhaal.
I'f you havent heard the song or seen the video i strongly suggest that you check it out!
