CD Review: The Vaccines Display Eighties Sound On New "English Graffiti" Album

Hailing from West London, indie-rockers The Vaccines recently released their latest album "English Graffiti." It is the band's third album and their first in over three years. The Vaccines are looking to bring back the height of 80's synth-pop music as their new eleven-song release is slathered with pop-punk youth.
Beginning with "Handsome," The Vaccines sound more experienced then their years as the up-beat tempo and addictive chorus are hard to resist. The album's latest single "Dream Lover" is the perfect recipe for bringing the past into the present with an eighties vibe hanging onto a modern alternative sound. The Vaccines can't escape the eighties with the keyboard pop of "Minimal Affection," while "20/20" and "Radio Bikini" showcases the band's youthful, punk energy. The album finishes up with the short two-minute synthesizer instrumental "Undercover."
The Vaccines are joining Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road tour for a show on June 6th at Seaside Heights, NJ and then for three more shows in August. To find out more about their new album English Graffiti," please visit
