VIDEO PREMIERE - THE VACCINES 'DREAM LOVER'

April 1, 2015

The Vaccines have premiered their new single ‘Dream Lover’, the second single off of their upcoming third album -English Grafitti. The video for fuzzy pop rock single has a fitting sci-fi theme, echoing the spacey and dreamy synths that are at the forefront of the track. 

 

Frontman Justin Young, when speaking to Huw Stephens of BBC 1, describes the song as “the best pop song we’ve written”, adding: “Conceptually and lyrically it’s really direct. The riff reminds me of something Run DMC or Beastie Boys might have sampled.” It is more electronic than their previously released single, ‘Handsome’, but fits The Vaccines cheeky and clever lyrical style.

 

English Graffiti- is due out on May 26th. The band is currently touring the UK, but will be returning to North America this summer with Mumford & Sons. Keep an eye out for Toronto dates!
