The Vaccines - 'Back In Love City'

Format: LP
Colour: Zoetrope

'Back In Love City' is the fifth studio album from The Vaccines, exclusively pressed to animated zoetrope picture disc via Blood Records. Recorded at Sonic Ranch, El Paso, TX, with producer Daniel Ledinsky (Tove Lo, Zara Larson, TV on the Radio, Rihanna), 'Back in Love City' is The Vaccines’ most euphoric, visceral, and visionary work to date. It’s a record that sees the five-piece assert themselves as one of Britain’s most vital guitar bands, with 13 songs set against the fictional metropolis of the album’s title.

Inspired by fictional cities - from Ridley Scott’s version of LA in 'Blade Runner' to Fear City in 'Cowboy Beebop' - as much as places like Las Vegas, Tijuana, and Tokyo, the idea of Love City took shape when the band’s frontman Justin Young set himself up in a house swap in Los Angeles, fuelling his fascination with disconnection: “I literally swapped lives with a stranger. I lived in his house and drove his car while he lived in mine, but we’d never met and had no previous connections.”
