Uber-hyped British garage rockers The Vaccines are already the next big thing in the U.K. and are finally bringing their brand of progressive punk rock to the States with an exclusive self-titled iTunes EP, released this week. In addition to “Blow It Up” and “Post Breakup Sex,” the EP includes new track “Wreckin’ Bar,” which is one minute and twenty-four seconds of pulsating, non stop rock madness that is literally soaked in distortion.
In the brief time it runs for, the band has time for a quick guitar solo, and produce a whole lot of energy, making the comparisons to the Ramones even more palpable. The band will be playing SXSW in March, a week before their debut record, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? comes out via Columbia.
