The Vaccines – Dream Lover

Dream Lover By Denise Berdan “Dream Lover” compared to the Vaccines older stuff does sound extremely different- at least to my ears, but it is a welcomed change. Sounding very reminiscent of 80s intergalactic ballads with possibly some influence from Arctic Monkey’s AM album and Daft Punk’s Discovery, “Dream Lover” gives the Vaccines an opportunity to be creative and play around with different sounds. “Dream Lover” is the second...

I’ll admit, I hadn’t heard much of Spaltro before heading into the Echo that Thursday night, and I fostered an expectation that I wouldn’t be surprised if the place was only full of regulars who would have been there...
