Vampire Weekend was formed by Ezra Koenig, Chris Tomson, Chris Baio and former member Rostam Batmanglij in 2006 while enrolled at Columbia University. They combine African rhythms and Peter Gabriel-esque vocals with an urban, punkish tone, describing themselves as specialists in the styles of 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa', 'Upper West Side Soweto', 'Campus', and 'Oxford Comma Riddim'. The band have over 1 Billion cumulative streams across digital platforms.
