Keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij told Rolling Stone : "'Cousins' is a song that we recorded in Mexico City. It's got probably the most demanding bass part Chris has wrote for himself, and probably the most demanding drum part Chris Tomson ever did for himself, so it's a demanding song. Whereas 'Horchata ' was a laidback slice of California pop, the "Cousins" groove kicks off fast and the energy never stops with rapid fire drums and frenzied guitars." (Source Cousins Songfacts).

They're gonna find it if you didn't close the door
You and this model sit outside of the side
In a house on a street that wouldn't park on the line

  • Definitely their best song, and honestly the only listenable thing since their debut album, IMO. [2]
  • I reckon this'll be remembered as the archetypal Vampire Weekend song. Like, this'll be their "We Can Work It Out".
  • Sigh, Vampire Weekend, all their songs are so pleasing to the ears.
