As the weather starts to turn toward the springtime that’s theoretically upon us, it’s difficult not to find oneself in the mood for Vampire Weekend‘s infectious warm-weather indie-pop. What’s more, with a May 7 release date, the coming of spring parallels the budding anticipation for the band’s third album, Modern Vampires of the City.

Lucky for us, Vampire Weekend has released a few of their new tracks and YouTube duo The DDL Boys have taken on the upbeat, somewhat gritty (by Vampire Weekend standards) “Diane Young.” With just two acoustic guitars, the boys dig out the organic vibe underlying even the most electropopped Vampire Weekend tracks and make the song feel like something we’ve known all along. Here’s hoping that “Diane Young” is a sign of things to come, both for Modern Vampires of the City and for the covers that come from it.
