In just one short year, The Vaccines seem to be everywhere. It’s difficult to look for indie music without encountering them on almost every blog, and even my Facebook news feed has been diligently feeding me posts from my friends Z and Z about their love for The Vaccines. They’re playing to sold-out shows across the UK and in Europe, and their debut album – the amusingly titled What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? – is an undeniable hit.
I first heard this London band on Post Break Up Sex, which I liked. I then heard their cover of Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night (TGIF), which I really liked. Then I heard Wetsuit and I fell in love. Absolutely in love. I haven’t posted in a while because life got in the way – my recently played tracklisted on iTunes was, until very recently, empty because I just didn’t have the time to listen to anything. But, as The Vaccines say, “We all got old at breakneck speed. Slow it down, go easy on me.”
