The Vaccines are Justin Young (vocals, guitar), Freddie Cowan (guitar, vocals), Árni Árnason (bass, vocals), Tim Lanham (keyboards) and Yoann Intoni (drums). Since the band’s inception, they have sold over two million records worldwide, cementing their position as torch carriers for British guitar music in the modern era. The new record follows the tenth-anniversary celebrations of their seminal debut, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? which first catapulted the band into the modern rock and roll canon. Each of their four albums so far have charted in the Top 5 in the UK, with second album, Come Of Age, hitting #1. Multiple Brit, NME, Q, Mojo awards nominees, they have a fierce live reputation forged through arena-filling headline shows and unforgettable slots at festivals including Glastonbury and Reading/Leeds.
The Vaccines will release their new album, Back In Love City, on 10th September. Following on from current single, Headphones Baby, the band’s fifth LP is previewed today with the release of its title track – watch the lyric video HERE and listen HERE. The album is available to pre-order and pre-save HERE.
Recorded at Sonic Ranch, El Paso, TX, with producer Daniel Ledinsky (Tove Lo, Zara Larson, TV on the Radio, Rihanna), Back in Love City is The Vaccines’ most euphoric, visceral and visionary work to date. It’s a record that sees the five-piece assert themselves as one of Britain’s most vital guitar bands, with 13 songs set against the fictional metropolis of the album’s title.
Inspired by fictional cities – from Ridley Scott’s version of LA in Blade Runner to Cowboy Beebop’s Fear City – as much as places like Las Vegas, Tijuana and Tokyo, the idea of Love City took shape when the band’s frontman Justin Young set himself up in a house swap in Los Angeles, fueling his fascination with disconnection: “I literally swapped lives with a stranger. I lived in in house and drove his car while he lived in mine, but we’d never met and had no previous connections.”
A modern-day pleasure island – equal part utopia and dystopia – Love City was born from the band’s fascination with emotions as commodities and the desperation for human connection. “In some obvious ways we’re more connected than ever,” Young explains. “But we’re also more polarised than we’ve been for 100 years and the world is getting colder. What if there was a place where love and other emotions had run dry – but you could go to Love City to get them?”
As a backdrop for the album’s hyperbolic tales of 21st-century escapism, the titular Love City allowed Young’s songwriting to flourish like never before. He imagined The Vaccines as the house-band in Love City, a place where safety, solace and satisfaction are on offer as much as love, where mental and physical pleasure is for sale, and where nobody has to be alone.
The album was finished early in 2020 and mixed by Andrew Maury (Lizzo, Post Malone) with additional production from Fryars (Pharrell Williams, Mark Ronson). It’s not a lockdown record, but its theme of escapism in modern life resonates more than ever in the pandemic era. It’s a massive musical leap forward for the band, too, and while the trademark surf swagger and Western flourish of The Vaccines sound remains, Back in Love City is their heaviest record so far. From the hard-hit of songs like “XCT”, “Wanderlust” and “Bandit” through to live fan favourite “Jump Off The Top” and the immediate rock n roll crash of “Headphones Baby”, it documents a band flexing at their creative peak.

Hug your nearest palm tree, BSÍ is coming to the UK!
Iceland’s summer experts Silla Thorarensen (drums & vocals) & Julius Pollux Rothlaender (bass guitar & toesynths) form one of the most unconventional bands emerging from Reykjavík’s flourishing DIY/DIT (=do-it-together) scene these days.
Their newly released debut album ‘Sometimes depressed … but always antifascist’ (May 21st, Tomatenplatten/post-dreifing/Why Not Plötur?) reveals a similar duality as the somewhat confusing band name itself – does BSÍ really stand for Brussels Sprouts Intl. or did the duo seek inspiration from Reykjavík’s grey and depressing central bus terminal BSÍ, the most miserable location you can find in all of Iceland?
Directing sorrow and the raw energy of joy and anger to two distinctly different sides, BSÍ created a debut album that might as well be a twin EP, five songs low key heartbreak melancholy, five songs riot grrrl lofi-cute-punk: ‘Sometimes depressed … but always antifascist’. Having started BSÍ under the premise of trying instruments they didn’t know how to play, Silla and Julius understand their duo as a playground for simply being who they are: Two best friends, rumbling and rolling through life, not taking themselves too seriously, struggling with self-doubts and imperfection while trying to see these as empowering virtues, unafraid to just do and be what- or however they feel.
BSÍ usually has more questions than answers, is sometimes sad, sometimes happy, has been through heartbreaks and great love, likes trúnó and tahini sauce with dill, spends its little savings on going to psychotherapists and would like to join you in your fight of smashing kyriarchy, that is: smashing sexism, racism, ableism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia and all other social systems based on oppressive, hierarchic and patriarchal structures.
