Vampire Weekend's blissed-out "Harmony Hall" gets a new music video

Vampire Weekend has released a new music video for its lead single, “Harmony Hall.” In between shots of a green, slithering snake and singer Ezra Koenig’s artsy pancakes are ones that evoke the Live and Blink-182 videos of yesteryear, with the band dancing like dweebs while singing into a wide-angle lens. Also, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes and Jonah Hill are there, because, as we well know by now, Vampire Weekend are friends with all the cool people.

“Harmony Hall” is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming Father Of The Bride, which is due out this spring. Koenig has said that the band plans to drop two new tracks every month until its release, and (checks watch) we’d say we’re about due for some.

Correction: An early version of this article stated that Jonah Hill directed the video. Emmett Malloy directed the video, while Hill just cameos near the end. Hill, however, did direct another video from the band that will be released in the future. We regret the error.
