The Vaccines: What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?
The Vaccines have recently exploded onto the scene, already releasing two singles and coming a healthy third in the BBC’s ‘Sound of Music 2011’ poll.
The London-based four-piece only formed in June 2010, but have already gained a reputation amongst peers and a rapidly increasing fan base for their unique brand of indie rock.
Depending on your point of view, this album is either ‘another indie record similar to all the others’, or a breakthrough piece of work that drags the genre into the new decade.
WDYEFTV mixes a beautiful blend of dark indie rock, snappy pop-punk, and melodic songs into what is, unfortunately, quite a short album.
Nevertheless, what there is makes for a great debut, and it’s gonna be interesting watching this band’s inevitable rise.
