Vampire Weekend consist of Ezra Koenig (vocals, guitar), Rostam Batmanglij (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Chris Baio (bass) and Christopher Tomson (drums). They met while attending Columbia University.
The four guys started the group in 2006 and worked on their first studio project as indie artists while working full-time jobs. The result is a self-titled mini album which was released after they graduated from college.
