The Vaccines' Justin Young has said that the band's new album is sounding "more intimate" than their 2011 debut 'What Did You Expect From The Vaccines' in an exclusive NME video interview you can watch above.

Speaking ahead of the group's set at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival yesterday (April 14), the singer revealed that the band have finished writing songs for the album and have already recorded six of them.

He also praised the positive influence of producer Ethan Johns, who has previously worked on albums by the likes of Kings Of Leon, Laura Marling and Tom Jones.

Young said it was a "dream come true" to work with Johns, commenting: "He mixes it live so everything is very organic. He says that when the hairs on his arms stand up he knows it's time to stop."

The frontman continued:

The record is a lot more intimate and close than the first record, whether you're a fan of the music or not, it sounds brilliant.


Young also discussed the band's DJ set at Mulberry's Firepit party on Friday (April 13), which saw the band "build the crowd" at the decks before Kasabian's special acoustic performance.

Coachella is currently midway through its Saturday bill, with the likes of Radiohead, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Kasabian due to play later today.

The Black Keys, Pulp and Arctic Monkeys played at the bash on Friday, while At The Drive-In, Justice and Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg are lined up for the final day of the festival.

The entire three-day line-up is due to return to the same site next weekend (April 20-22).
