The recipe is old, but the dish always tastes brand new. The London band The Vaccines brings a carefree uptempo brashness to Britpop that overflows with ideas and harmonies in their five albums. The “NME” named them cover stars for their 2011 debut, and their current album “Back in Love City”, like all its predecessors, went into the top five of the British charts. The Vaccines intertwine lo-fi guitars and 60s exuberance with cool serenity. Each song becomes an anthem for sceptical optimists. In the early summer of 2022, they release a new EP. With “Planet of the Youth” they will go on tour in Great Britain – and will perform well-oiled at Pure&Crafted.
