Video Interview: The Vaccines


Hey guys!

I think sometimes my job is very chaotic. And for as overwhelming and exhausting as it can be to be stuck in traffic, run terribly late for an interview and freeze your bum off, I think the craziness of it is what I love.

Yesterday was a mad day and a lot of things went wrong, nonetheless I got to film a lovely interview with two members of The Vaccines.

The Vaccines are a four piece band from London, England.
Their sound varies but could be classified as indie pop with bits of alternative rock.

The band formed in 2010 and has been making music ever since and took over the music scene in 2011. 
Their debut album was 2011's best selling debut album, their fanbase grew and they played more than 150 shows in that year.
It all continued with great reviews, support slots for The Artic Monkeys and countless other highlights.

The Vaccines are:
Justin Young (lead vocals, guitar)
Freddie Cowan (guitar)
Árni Árnason (bass)
Pete Robertson (drums)

- "What Did You Expect From The Vaccines" (2011)
- "Come Of Age" (2012)
- "English Graffiti" (2015) 

This year The Vaccines released their third LP, played tons of festivals and are currently touring the world.
Whilst being in Cologne for one of their Germany shows, I met up with Justin and Arni. 

As we sat down in their tour bus, we chatted about their new music video, the influence of a crowd, documentary titles and a lot more.

Many thanks to the wonderful people from Sony Music Germany and The Vaccines' tour manager for making this happen. Also many thanks to Justin and Arni.

Thank you for reading & watching!
