Vampire Weekend Member Releases First Solo Single

Former Vampire Weekend member, Rostam Batmanglij, is working on his solo and it is in full swing with the release of his first single “Wood”.  The band’s former guitarist/keyboardist described the single in a lengthy Instagram post, saying he “wanted to try to capture the feeling of being in bed with someone, and dreaming something wild beside them.”

Batmanglij also shared some BTS insight into the tune. He revealed that he created its unique beat on an airplane where he pushed himself “to write the hardest, fastest, most classical violin parts I could.”
