"Step (Remix)"

  • Vampire Weekend feat. Danny Brown, Despot and Heems
  • "Step (Remix)"
Ezra Koenig Vampire Weekend

A rewind of the harpsichord-centric Modern Vampires of the City highlight ditches Ezra Koenig's verses to let three MCs riff. In the song's spirit, Heems flashes back to Wesleyan days, Despot quotes Robert Frost, and Danny Brown hazily imagines a bridal bouquet. For a jam inspired by both Bread and Souls of Mischief, it's perfect.
