Our track of the day is The Vaccines who have shared the previously unheard demo ‘I Never Go Out On Fridays’. In this current climate, the track feels more than appropriate with swathes of the country holed up in our homes on Friday evenings (and every other evening) for the foreseeable future.
The song is a full-on indie assault and rings out, like most Vaccine tracks do, as a (future) dancefloor filler. For now, however, it can just be a bedroom dancing gem as The Vaccines reject the nightlife.
Taking to Instagram to reveal the new track, the band wrote: “Made this demo a couple of years ago and gave up on it surfacing, but it’s recently taken on a whole new meaning and so wanted to share with you,” in a post on social media. “We’ve always really liked it. I guess we’ll all see the light of day eventually,” the added.
Frontman Justin Young spoke to NME recently to promote Halloweens—a side project with Vaccines band-mate Timothy Lanham—who released their debut album earlier this month and talked about the follow up to 2018’s Combat Sports which the five-piece are currently working on.
The singer said: “The new Vaccines album is heavier than anything we’ve ever done and it’s quite brutal in places. I’m sure that’s a consequence of having made a pretty record. There’s lots of riffs. It’s weird, it’s the poppiest and most colourful record, but—actually, I’m gonna stop myself there. It just feels really heavy, it’s quite face-melting in places. Lots more screaming. It’s good, I think.”
