One of our favorite bands is Vampire Weekend
, so whenever there is any sort of news or music involving them, we can't help but fangirl just a little bit.
Their former band member, Rostam Batmanglij, partnered with Hamilton Leithauser from The Walkmen
to form a new collaboration called Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam. In addition to the new name, the duo have also released a new track "A 1000 Times," and it's a pretty strong debut.
"A 1000 Times" is a fun, beat heavy track and although you can hear both the sounds of Vampire Weekend and The Walkmen, it's pretty much a straight up Walkmen song. If the rest of their work resembles anything even slightly similar to this hit, I think that Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam will catch on and become just as popular as their past projects.
