New York indie band Vampire Weekend have released two new singles, their first in 6 years.

"Harmony Hall" and "2021" will both be a part of an upcoming album Father of the Bride, which will reportedly contain 18 tracks. The album doesn't yet have a fixed date of release, but is set to drop come springtime.

Yummy - I'm getting pretty excited for this. Not going to listen to these singles because I like to ingest whole albums and singles take away that joy for me, so let's get this album released asap boiz.

"Harmony Hall" is fantastic but "2021" feels like a bit of a throwaway.

2021 is fairly yawn, but I can't really tell outside of the context of the album. Harmony Hall is enjoyable enough though not particularly memorable after a few listens. Not a super strong start for an anticipated album but I'm still looking forward to it.

2021 is pretty terrible with the lazy singing and annoying samples, except for those harmonized synth leads which are cool. But Harmony Hall is a little more interesting. I've never listened to this band before and don't think I will again, but I could see why some people like it.

2021 seems like an intro track rather than a single. Harmony Hall is good, and it’s nice to see these guys making music again.

Harmony Hall sounds exactly like the kind of song I go "Yeah that's solid" when I first hear it but will eventually grow on me a bunch.
