CURRENT: Rostam – “EOS”

As a member of Vampire Weekend, Rostam Batmanglij has proven himself to be one of the better composers of the era, and his work with the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen and Charli XCX has only driven that point home further. Recording under his first name, Rostam takes the plush, colorful melodies of VW and filters them into a rawer product on “EOS.” The end result is a somber yet hopeful track that recalls the emotional longing of MVOTC tracks “Step” and “Ya Hey.” But most of all, “EOS” is a glaring reminder that Rostam is a force to be reckoned with.
