Hamilton Leithauser and Rostam Turn Back the Clock in ‘1959’
Last month, the Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser teamed up with Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij for their collaborative LP, I Had A Dream That You Were Mine. Recently, the indie rock luminaries caught up with Pitchfork.tv for a live set featuring a full band; today, they've shared the professionally-shot video of their take on album track "1959" from that session. Directed by Jon Leone, the clip is appropriately styled after its titular era: a stark black and white palette, gussied up by a silvery backdrop straight out of a '50s sock hop. Take a trip back in time below.
