Ibiza Rocks TV EP03 - Zane Lowe, The Vaccines and Darwin Deez!
The brand new tune from The Vaccines covering R.Stevie Moore - Why Should I Love You
Brand new from The Vaccines - Premiered on Zane Lowe’s show last night this is ‘No Hope’
NME’s Best New Band of 2012 are once again taking to the Ibiza Rocks stage, this time headlining their very own show. The likes of Zane Lowe have been early supporters of the band, who played the open air stage in 2011 alongside Zane. With good reason we’re welcoming them back; there’s a new album for 2013 featuring the epic indie anthem ‘Teenage Icon’ but we still can’t get enough of this classic Vaccines track…

There’s something about indie rock bands that you just don’t get from watching anyone else. It’s difficult to put your finger on, but it can probably be pinpointed to unadulterated swagger. So last night, with Palma Violets and The Vaccines on the bill, Ibiza Rocks had swagger by the bucketload. There was so much swagger, that even Maroon 5 wouldn’t be able to sing about it, and that can only be a blessing.
Palma Violets burst onto the stage with a mission; to blow the crowd away, and for them, it wasn’t hard to achieve. Soaring riffs, sweaty hair and a dose of old school rock’n’roll attitude had people enraptured. And when the band jumped into the crowd and started moshing at the front, people were beside themselves with delight. The set finished with reverberations of ‘that was amazing’ echoing around Rocks.
And then it was the turn of the headliners. Pumped up and ready to eclipse their 2011 Ibiza Rocks performance, The Vaccines aptly opened with ‘Blow It Up’. Hands were in the air and they stayed there as they belted ‘Teenage Icon’ which could well describe what these boys have become, despite their protestations. Tune by tune we were whipped into a stupor by Justin’s deep, searching vocals, so when ‘Post Break Up Sex’ was played midway through the set everyone was fit to burst. They ended on a high with ‘Norgaard’ and a thank you to the Rocks crowd for being so damn awesome. What Did You Expect from The Vaccines? Nothing less.
