Single Review – The Vaccines – Handsome

Nearly two months after sharing ‘Handsome’, you can now get your hands on the lead single from their upcoming third studio album English Graffiti. They’ll be hoping for a marked improvement on their first two offerings that were labelled by a variety of reviewers as ‘incoherent’ or ‘trudging’ and for me they were another addition to the factory line of Indie fodder without much originality from the music to the lyrics and everything in-between with the odd glint of something more promising. Surely it’s time to break the mould? ‘Handsome’ certainly has a similar energy that was the highlight of the previous tracks and the song’s progressions are rapid whilst helped through by the hand-claps and the fuzzy lead sections. Other than that though, it’s just a catchy bit of Indie ordinance and it seems that so far, this album will be similar to the first two.
