See Vampire Weekend Convert ‘Unbelievers’ on ‘Fallon’
Performed 'Modern Vampires of the Cities' jangler backed by projections
“Unbelievers” keeps convincing. SPIN’s 2013 Band of the Year Vampire Weekend first previewed latest album Modern Vampires of the City with a Halloween 2012 performance of this bouncy contemplation on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. They brassed it up last spring on Saturday Night Live. And they brought it back to Kimmel to kick off 2014. Last night, coming off a solo tour for bassist Chris Baio and an Oscar duet with Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O for frontman Ezra Koenig, the New York band took to Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, where they again cast out “Unbelievers,” this time backed by projections evoking the album’s cover art.
