Vampire Weekend‘s first single off Vampires of the Modern City, “Diane Young,” is a high-octane, blast-it-with-your-windows-rolled-down sort of song. While visiting Radio One Live Lounge, Scottish band Biffy Clyro still had some fun with the original upbeat tune but still managed to mellow it out in this acoustic cover.

The cover features a guitar, bass, box drum, and vocals, and a couple of unstifled giggles. Biffy Clyro will be headlining this weekend’s Reading and Leeds Festival. In case you aren’t in the U.K. (or don’t have one of the sold out tickets), watch this instead.

Learn more about the Scottish trio on the band’s website.
