“I love capturing a person who is so completly awestruck by the band they love, isolating their experience by showing only the emotion in their face”

“Campus,” the sixth song on Vampire Weekend, was written by keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij before the band was ever formed. The version that appears on the album is very different from Batmanglij’s original version, presented here. Instead of an indie rock track with Afropop influence, “Campus” appears here with no guitars or keyboards, and minimal drums, all replaced by a luscious string ensemble. Batmanglij’s vocal delivery is softer than Koenig’s, and the song takes a completely different attitude from the final version that appears on Vampire Weekend. 

The awe I have for Rostam’s talent is endless *o*

Your Laura disappeared. It’s just me now.

As sure as life means nothing 
And all things end in nothing
