Chris Baio and Ezra Koenig accepting Vampire Weekend’s award for Best Act in the World Today at the 2013 Q Awards in London

Probably some of you guys are wondering, are we really the best act in the world today? There might even be some people in the room who don’t know who Vampire Weekend is…okay maybe not, but, we thought we’d tell you a little story just so you know how much this means to us.

"When we started, we didn’t know what we were doing. We were just friends picking up instruments. The music was so different when we started. It’s taken us a long time to figure out what our sound is. But I think that kind of thing takes time. I’m suspicious of acts that meet and two months later are signed. You don’t have a foundation, and you don’t know who you are."
