The Vaccines reveal new video for ‘Melody Calling’ – watch

Band help bass player Arni Arnason with his love life in new video

The Vaccines have unveiled the official video for their new single ‘Melody Calling’.

The track is taken from the band’s ‘Melody Calling’ EP, which was released last week (August 12). The EP was recorded during the band’s US sessions in March at Eldorado Studios in Burbank, Los Angeles, with producers John Hill (Rihanna, MIA, Santigold) and Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys). The release also features the two versions of ‘Do You Want A Man’, and was released to coincide with the band’s US tour dates supporting Phoenix and Mumford & Sons.

In the video, which you can see below, The Vaccines’ bassist Arni Arnason rings up his bandmates, including frontman Justin Young, for advice on how to deal with a girl problem he is having. Scroll down to watch the video in full.


Speaking to NME about the tracks featured on the EP earlier this year, frontman Justin Young said: “We recorded a few songs in LA last month with John Hill and Rich Costey, and we’re just working out what to do with them… They feel like a bridge to something else, so I guess they’ll be an EP, but I guess there is a small chance they might be the start of album three, because I feel very creative at the moment. They feel quite different so it’s exciting. We’re trying a lot of things for the first time.”

The Vaccines joined Beyoncé, Kings of Leon, The Courteeners and Two Door Cinema Club on the line-up for V Festival 2013 this weekend.
