Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend has debuted a new track titled 'EOS', accompanied by a music video. The video, based on a 25-second exposure photograph taken during a trip to desert dunes outside Jaisalmer, India, was directed by Rostam and features animation by Jon Race.
"Lo and behold you were here know you're gone". It's an awesome use of gang vocals in an intensely intimate recording, and almost acts like soul food in its own respect. At the root of it, it's as reassuring of the disposition as it is reminiscent of the situation. 'EOS' is Rostam's third solo song, following 'Don't Let It Get To You' and 'Wood' and is available now via XL digitally and on 7" in February.
