The Vaccines


The Vaccines have released a new track in anticipation of their upcoming North American tour dates. “Melody Calling” was recorded in March at Eldorado Studios with producers John Hill (Rihanna, MIA, Santigold) and Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys); the band debuted “Melody Calling” on their recent U.K. Arena tour which included shows at London’s O2 Arena and Leeds Millennium Square. The track can be heard above.

So, here we have it, yet another indie rock band with bouncy, melody-ridden tunes, but are they adding anything new to an already saturated market? The Vaccines have only been around for a short period, in fact just two months short of a year. The London-based band consist of Justin Young, Árni Hjörvar, Pete Robertson and Freddie Cowan – brother of Tom from British alt-rock sensations, The Horrors.
