British buzz band (and MTV nominees for best new band) The Vaccines have signed on to play at the NME Awards Tour all across the U.K. after being hyped by BBC music enthusiast Zane Low, and dropping a handful of singles that recall their 60s rock n roll meets punk influences. Their most recent, the charmingly titled “Post Break-Up Sex,” comes with a B-side, “We Are Happening,” out on 7,” January 31.
“We Are Happening” is a cheerful garage-rock head bumper that sounds painstakingly like the Ramones. It looks like these guys have the potential to be the next Arctic Monkeys. What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? comes out March 21 through Columbia — the same day as the Strokes’ Angles.
