Sanders is currently battling with Hillary Clinton to be the Democrats' Presidential candidate

US Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders concluded a speech in Iowa on Monday night (February 1) by playing David Bowie‘s classic hit ‘Starman’.

Sanders is currently battling with Hillary Clinton to be the Democrats’ representative for this year’s election. He appeared at a rally in Iowa on Monday as the state went to the polls in the first caucus of the 2016 primaries.

BBC News reports that Sanders is at a “virtual tie” with Clinton in Iowa, with 99 per cent of votes cast.

Sanders has received vocal support in recent days, with Neil Young, Killer Mike and Thurston Moore among the musicians endorsing the candidate.

Over the weekend, Vampire Weekend played their first live show in two years at a Bernie Sanders rally.

Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig previously explained why he is backing Sanders in his bid to be US President.

“I see a consistency in him that’s rare in most human beings, let alone politicians,” Koenig is quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, Azealia Banks has surprised many by publicly backing Donald Trump, saying that she is voting for him because he is “evil, like America”.

“I only trust this country to be what it is: full of shit,” she continued. “Takes shit to know shit so we may as well, put a piece of shit in the White House”.
