Another new song by The Vaccines, from their forthcoming EP has been revealed
The second new song by The Vaccines, from the soon-to-be-released ‘Melody Calling EP has been revealed.
Titled ‘Everybody’s Gonna Let You Down’, it provides further insight into the musical direction that the band is taking right now.
For those who missed previous posts, the EP was recorded at the legendary Eldorado Studio in California. Eldorado has been the location for an embarrassment of classic recordings over the years. Brian Eno, Herbie Hancock, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, Avenged Sevenfold and countless others have worked here.
Whilst most bands have a lengthy period set aside at Eldorado in advance to create a new album, The Vaccines were just feeling particularly creative whilst on tour in the US, and decided to capture their ideas whilst on the road. Workaholics …
But hey, who’s complaining?
New, mellower style?
Speaking about the new EP, frontman, Justin Young, has previously stated that the new material feels ‘…quite different, so it’s exciting’. On the evidence of this new song, and single ‘Melody Calling’, it’s hard to disagree.
‘Everybody’s Gonna Let You Down’ in particular has a slightly more mellow, introspective style than band’s previous output. With a flavour of ‘60s pop, it’s something of a step away from the band’s spikier, high-energy moments.
Though it might not be a conscious effort, Justin described the forthcoming EP as feeling like ‘…a bridge to something else…’ Despite this slight change of musical tone, the track is still driven by the band’s seemingly gift for effortlessly crafting a great melody and a great anthem.
Are we hearing Freddie’s Farida GNA-TV on these new tracks? Well, it hasn’t been confirmed, but given that it’s pretty much all he’s been playing at recent shows, it seems pretty likely that it’s made an appearance somewhere.
This stunning limited edition guitar (max 25 pieces worldwide) is due to land very soon. See our online store here for the Deluxe version, and here for the Pro version.
Whichever guitar he decided to play, it certainly agrees with this new style. We’re looking forward to hearing some more…
