Spending the declining weeks of 2014 in the studio, The Vaccines have seemingly finished work on their third album.
Due for release later this year, the band have decided to unveil new single ‘Handsome’ first. Out on March 9th via download and limited edition orange vinyl, it’ll feature a Dave Fridmann re-edit on the flip.
The video has gone live now. A propulsive return, the band explain:
"We wanted to create a video that was a sort of bubblegum ode to cinema and, in particular, Hong Kong kung fu movies," explains Justin Young of the band. "Music to me is entertainment, and escapism, and we wanted the video to be an extension of that. We want to create another world in which we can play aspirational and heightened versions of ourselves. We shot this through a winter's night in a warehouse in Brooklyn, just before Christmas. No fun indeed. Gerson though, as Canada directors always seem to do, helped us escape and create exactly the world in which we wish we lived."
