EP Blurb: Please Please Do Not Disturb by the Vaccines

A little over a year since the release of their debut album, all I can say is I still honestly don’t know what to expect from the Vaccines. Their debut was a glorious tumult of vintage-esque British rock, catapulting them into the libraries of fans of such exalted Brit rock bands as Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian. It was an exhilarating sugar rush of rock and roll and it was over all too fast. Just when we thought we had their sound nailed, however, they released the Please Please Do Not Disturb EP on their website. Four dusty acoustic-picked demos long, it’s the sort of melancholy nostalgia you want to turn on before bedtime. It’s definitely more sedated than what we’re used to from them, which just goes to show their range. It’s consistent with frontman Justin Young’s former solo stuff as Jay Jay Pistolet. It’s definitely worth snagging. Download it here. Fo free.

The West London four-piece are due to release their sophomore album in just a few days. I’ve listened to it through and I can say it’s definitely worth getting excited about, especially if you liked their first album. Stream it at the Guardian.
