This is the sound of The Vaccines not playing around anymore.

If there’s a band who’ve been promising at breaking down the ceiling of headline status, then it can only be The Vaccines. Like a jumping frog of swagger, styles and ready-made live favourites, it’s a promise that has been there ever since they emerged with ‘What Did You Expect From…” all sweet indie hooks in tow and an insatiable flashback of a band in a room, jamming away and dreaming of the big leagues. Through mercurial detours and shimmering nods to guitar music’s finest, they’ve gone on quite the journey since - but that final step into the upper echelons has remained just one step ahead. In 2018, that step feels imminent - especially after the thunderbolt sweeps of comeback track ‘I Can’t Quit’ and now, with ‘Nightclub’, they have the seducing rattlesnake ready to strike.

Sliding like the sound of Blondie’s ‘One Way Or Another’ on a slope drenched in champagne and martinis, it brings everything The Vaccines’ has represented into one pot. The wide-eyed Blackpool shaman of showbiz moves, the sizzling ride of 00s British Indie and the sweaty stripes of underground New York clubs - it’s all there in glorious technicolour with ‘Nightclub’. Like unleashing a cannon of unbridled confidence, The Vaccines are in mesmerising form - trading upon dangerous love and extravagant desire with a glint in their eye, careering off each note and flying right to their destination.

It’s the sound of The Vaccines not playing around anymore, knowing full well the destination they want to be at and aware of the band they’re destined to be. We may not hear a more confident statement in 2018, and for The Vaccines - it’s the track that proves why certain ceilings need to get demolished pronto. Jamie Muir

A rare bright point in a pretty damn difficult year, BENEE's arrival has been a serotonin shot in the arm. With her debut album finally here, the future looks brighter already.

The wait for shame's second album may seem to have lasted longer than it actually has. as they stand on the edge of a huge 2021, we get ready for a record that isn't supposed to be funny, but...
