Watch: Vampire Weekend covers ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ by Crowded House

Their rendition stays quite true to the 1986 classic

Vampire Weekend recently played a show in Cleveland where they covered Crowded House’s classic 1986 track, “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”

The jangly indie band’s rendition is pretty true to the original, and quite a different performance for Vampire Weekend as frontman Ezra Koenig wails along to the intimate, slow-building tune. The track revolves around a straightforward guitar line and a steady drumbeat, as Koenig allows the emotion of the track to truly shine through on his vocals.
