80’s Flashback

So, this band – Vampire Weekend (a.k. my latest obsession)- isn’t from the 80’s, BUT I think the video speaks for itself with the multitude of pastels, a Thrilleresque transformation and AMAZING sunglasses.  On a more serious note though, the lead singer stated in Rolling Stone that the song is “about colonialism and the aesthetic connections between preppy culture and the native cultures of places like Africa and India.”  Take from that what you will!

Let us know what your favorite part of the video is.  Personally, mine is the drummer walking down the beach in long dark socks and mini bongos…need I say more?
