Father Of The Bride

Harmony Hall, This Life, Unbearably White, Sunflower

Vampire Weekend return with their 4th LP record Father Of The Bride. I have very much enjoyed every single they have released in the build-up to this release. Harmony Hall was a great lead-off but the one that really grabbed me was Sunflower. A borderline psychedelic 2-minute banger, that gives a home to melodies that will be stuck in your head for weeks!

 

I spent the weekend soaking this album in and arranging it for the ukulele and it was such a treat to work with. My fingers were on fire by the end of playing Sunflower!
