Watch The Vaccines liken the VO5 NME Awards 2018 to a “rock’n’roll summer camp”

Justin Young admitted that he couldn't speak to Godlike Genius-winner Liam Gallagher as it was "a little scary"

The Vaccines‘ Justin Young has observed that last night’s VO5 NME Awards 2018 felt like “the first day of rock’n’roll summer camp”, adding that being surrounded by some of music’s biggest names on the night was “a little scary”.

Young, along with his bandmate Freddie Cowan, attended the ceremony to present Pale Waves with the NME Under The Radar Award supported by HMV.

Although The Vaccines weren’t up for any awards last night (February 14) – they’ll release their fourth album, ‘Combat Sports’, on March 30 – Young and Cowan were in good spirits as they spoke to NME following their presenting stint.

Asked who they’d been hanging out with on the night, Young revealed that the pair were “trying to keep a low profile.”

“It’s very intimidating – it’s kinda like the first day of rock’n’roll summer camp,” Young said. “It’s a little scary – [though] I wouldn’t speak to Liam [Gallagher].”

The frontman did profess his admiration for this year’s Godlike Genius though, revealing that Oasis were an important force in his musical upbringing.
