Single Review – The Vaccines – I Can’t Quit

Since The Vaccines’ last album English Graffiti, drummer Pete Robertson walked out, and Tim Lanham and Ioann Intonti walked in. And despite the switch up, the change in the band’s sound is only that of the clocks being turned back to 2011, as new single I Can’t Quit roars with the same powerful enthusiasm as their earliest anthems. Opening with a head-bopping intro to bass drum and guitar riff, it’s not long before the lyrics of the infectious hook come into play, prepared to take up permanent residence in your head, and even more prepared to sell out massive arena gigs. The lyrics aren’t necessarily sophisticated – this arena filling chorus is a repeated 6-word hook – but you can always rely on the now-5-piece for some straightforward alt-rock to put a smile on your face.
