After featuring in our UK predictions for 2011, The Vaccines are already coming good on their promise with their latest single ‘Post Break Up Sex’. Predictably the track is inspired by those, quite often awkward, moments when you’re trying to put a relationship behind you. Thankfully, despite the morose subject matter, the song continues the band’s string of addictive singles. Short, punchy and with a chorus that will refuse to leave your head for weeks, ‘Post Break Up Sex’ is a great slice of fuzzy guitar driven pop.
The single pre-empts the London foursome’s debut album ‘What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?’ which is due for release in March. The year promises to be a busy one for the hotly tipped band, who head out to play a handful of dates in the US before returning to the UK to open the NME Awards Tour with Crystal Castles, Magnetic Man and Everything Everything. Head to their website for more tour info and a free download of album track ‘Blow It Up’.
