Each song individually is good. But as a whole they are lacking something. They are too samey, and I don't feel any intimacy or emotion in their music.

I reserve them for driving music/with friends music.

whenever I hear about a new indie band and wonder how good/important they might be, I automatically ask myself, OK, so how do they sound compared to to Battles, Radiohead, or Boris?. 'Nuff said?

Another one of those bands that gets hyped. I saw them on SNL. I wasn't very impressed, but I wasn't very annoyed either. Most new bands would get a rating of 4/10 from me, VW gets about a 5/10.

They sound like the Police, only for the 2000s.

Oh, I said that already.

Talking Heads too, but yeah, more like the Kindercore version or so of The Police than anything. I like 'em, but just like Alex's Trip opined, I'm not crazy 'bout 'em or anything.

Of course, 30 years from now some web site like Pitchfork will be telling us that instead of listening to Radiohead and Battles we should have been paying attention to bands like Vampire fucking Weekend. You can't win.

This band is boring.
The superior Vampire band is Vampire Hands, if it's Vampire-based music group nomenclature you're after.

They sound like Paul Simon more than anything. Twas an enjoyable show, but I don't like the hype they're getting. Doesn't really deserve much more than a one off....

A girl in my jazz class name dropped them as though they were saving popular music with their "afro-pop" style.

i saw their video and the song was quite unmemorable, reminded me of that other hype band who had the video with the exercise walker things.

they kinda also reminded me of hot chip who are another big nothingness band.

they got some catchy tunes but yeah, i think what is perceived as their fan base is really hindrance for me. plus they arent so great that i can get past it. but there is so much better music to check out out there.

Journalists create a buzz about certain bands. This one is very neat and they go into raptures about how good looking they are because they dress well with expensive clothes. But their music is bland next to their influences

How do bands like this get famous? Who do they know? Who got paid off? How much? I'm really curious.
