The Vaccines Show More Than Just ‘Minimal Affection’ on New Single

The Vaccines are just under a month away from the release of their follow-up to 2012’s U.K. chart-topping Come of Ageand today the group shared the third single from the upcoming English GraffitiThe new track, “Minimal Affection,” is aptly named, as the squeaky synths and steady, earth-bound bass line convey distance with just a hint of detached warmth, and lyrics like “How am I supposed to hear you calling/ If I can’t hear a word you say?” drive this weird but groovy dichotomy home even further. Listen to “Minimal Affection” over at Stereogum, and look for English Graffiti on May 26 via Columbia.
