Biography

From the moment Alex Kapranos, The Maccabees, Mumford and Sons, and
White Lies all turned up to the band's first ever London gig, a huge buzz has
surrounded The Vaccines. Led by front man Justin Young (formerly Jay Jay
Pistolet) and guitarist Freddie Cowan (brother of The Horrors bassist Tom
Cowan), The Vaccines, who formed in 2010 in West London, soon won heavy acclaim
from the critics and, burdened with the tag "the new Strokes", were
acclaimed as saviours of British guitar pop. Full of brash, youthful rock &
roll, the fever intensified with the release of early singles “Wreckin' Bar
(Ra Ra Ra)”
and “Post Break-Up Sex” and the band were nominated for
the BBC Sound of 2011 poll, eventually finishing third. Heavily influenced by
1960s girl groups, 1950s rockabilly, C86, and Brit-pop, their debut album, 2011’s
What Did You Expect from The Vaccines? shot to number 4 in the UK
charts, cementing their reputation as one the most exciting young indie bands
in Britain. They followed this up with Come of Age in 2012 which reached
number 1. 2015’s English Graffiti and 2018’s Combat Sports returned
them to the top 5 on the album chart, as did 2021’s Back in Love City.
