Volare Number One Sound – 31/3/2019

Nama “Harmony Hall,” kata Ezra Koenig, frontman Vampire Weekend , tidak merujuk ke gedung asrama Universitas Columbia dengan nama yang sama. Hal ini cukup mengejutkan, mengingat Koenig banyak menulis tentang almamaternya. Tapi lebih mungkin itu merujuk pada perkumpulan utopis yang gagal.

Atau mungkin, seperti yang diduga beberapa orang, merupakan sinonim untuk “ruang gema.”

“Anybody with a worried mind could never forgive the sight / Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified,” demikian Koenig memberikan sedikit petunjuk di dalam chorus.

Makna politik di sini jelas terbaca, bagaimana lembaga-lembaga besar dapat dikorupsi, tentang bagaimana suara yang telah menyatu pun dapat disusupi oleh pengkhianat.
