The Vaccines – ‘Teenage Icon’


The Vaccines are back with their second single from the upcoming album Come of Age and for all those people who didn’t like ‘No Hope’ I would urge you not to give up yet as ‘Teenage Icon’ shows The Vaccines at their anthemic best.

It shows a definite progression from their debut album and I can see this being, excuse the cheesiness, a festival anthem. I have witnessed the incredible crowd reaction at this year’s Reading festival. I can see this being as synonymous with The Vaccines at the likes of ‘If You Wanna’ and ‘Post Break Up Sex’. This single should get you nice and warmed up for Coming of Age, released on 3rd September.

You can catch them on their upcoming UK tour this November. Check out their website for more information.
