The Vaccines – ‘Handsome’

So. The Vaccines. ‘Handsome’. Taken from their upcoming third album ‘English Graffiti’ and about as cocky and self-indulgent as it sounds. Sure, it’s catchy but as the saying goes, so’s the flu and ‘Handsome’ fits right in that bracket; after all, there’s a reason there’s (ironically) a vaccine against that. A clichéd monster of repetitive shrillness from Justin Young, fast bland guitar and a clap machine to get their tween audience excited, it’s just not great. To paraphrase Young’s lyrics, ‘generic, flat and bad, thank god I’m handsome.’
