04/02/2021: “Handsome” by The Vaccines

Not every song needs to be a 7 minute long magnum opus. A short burst of power and vibrancy is ideal sometimes!

The Vaccines certainly deliver here. The drummer had his work cut out smashing his way through this – I imagine he gets quite sweaty when he plays the song live…

Otherwise, the song is a wall of light guitar skanks, nimble hooks and innocuous noises hovering just at the edge of hearing. It’s great fun!

The song was released as a single from 2015’s English Graffiti.
