Appropriate this track rings of The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love.”
Vampire Weekend’s contribution to the “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” soundtrack, “Jonathan Low,” has finally made its way to the ‘net, and it’s actually a surprising contrast to the New York-based band’s output. It tends toward the dreamy rather than the crisp, tight tunes of the band’s last “Contra” and self-titled sets. Take “Holiday,” for example, a track whose video debuted just yesterday.
The 12-string, sunny, fleshy, full song may be a change, too, from the remainder of the compilation, which has promised the moodiness of Muse’s “Neutron Star Collision,” Metric’s space-rock, the ilk.
“Jonathan Low” debuted on Zane Lowe’s BBC show, but we got it courtesy of Consequence of Sound, which included blurbs about how the song came about.
