The Vaccines - Norgaard

After the ridiculous amount of hype that surrounded them at the beginning of 2011 has died down, The Vaccines are now reaching the stage where their music is being examined on the basis of its quality, rather than the strength of its promotion. It is at this stage, fresh from the festival season, that the band release their next single from their Gold selling album "What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?"

Thankfully, "Norgaard" shows the band at the top of their indie-punk game. I've always felt the band have been at their strongest with their shorter, spikier, Ramones-esque numbers. The song harks back to their debut single, "Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)", with it's 3 chord, sub 100 second length reminding us that bigger and longer is not always better.
