Tropical beach vibes and subdued cool radiates from this new track by BAIO of Vampire Weekend. ‘On&On&On&On’ may have a lot of the similar African influences and infamous summer riffs of early Vampire Weekend, however it is definitely a step in a different direction for bassist Chris Baio.
I love this track and although summer is coming to an end, ‘On&On&On&On’ feels like it could extend the heat and energy of those few months for the whole year round. Along with notably subtle and feminine vocals, the repeated beats and distorted keyboard sounds add to the enticing nature of this track and give it an undeniable edge over my other favourite DJ tunes. A deep, brass sounding bass line contrasts with the smooth finger clicking and simple but melodic notes to create a sound which was just made to be heard in a hammock or on a sun lounger. It’s interesting enough to put on repeat and exciting enough to tweet about more than once. I would highly recommend buying the new EP; you won’t regret it.
