The Vaccines announce new album, 'English Graffiti', + new single “Handsome”

Spending most of 2014 locked away hard at work on their new record, The Vaccines mark a wondrous comeback with their brand new single Handsome. Indebted with the band's unique fun take on jangly guitar pop their latest outing is encased in the catchy hooks and high energy rhythms you'd expect. Whatever's the secret formula for creating infectious instant mood-lifting pop then these guys have it locked. Be sure to check out the official clip above with the band enlisting the aid of CANADA (, an esteemed collective of directors based in Barcelona to showcase their exceptional kung-fu skills. “We wanted to create a video that was a sort of bubblegum ode to cinema and, in particular, Hong Kong kung fu movies,” explains frontman Justin Young. “Music to me is entertainment, and escapism, and we wanted the video to be an extension of that. We want to create another world in which we can play aspirational and heightened versions of ourselves. We shot this through a winter’s night in a warehouse in Brooklyn, just before Christmas. No fun indeed. Gerson though, as Canada directors always seem to do, helped us escape and create exactly the world in which we wish we lived.”

Handsome is available to pre-order now - available digitally and as a limited edition orange vinyl 7” which will also be in the shops on Monday 9th March 2015: iTunes, Amazon, Vinyl
