Vampire Weekend performed “Sunflower” from their new LP, Father of the Bride, on Wednesday (May 8) for the Jimmy Kimmel Live audience.
The indie band gave viewers what felt like an intimate jam session with a groovy, extended intro of the track before getting into vocals. In addition to the band were three saxophone players who added extra funk to the guitar twangs by frontman Ezra Koenig and guitarist Brian Jones.
“Sunflower” features guitarist Steve Lacy, but he did not perform on Kimmel with Vampire Weekend. He is also featured on some of the LP’s other tracks.
