London-based, indie outfit The Vaccines played the conclusion of two consecutive sold-out gigs at Glasgow’s 02 Academy on Monday night.

A later than usual start slot provoked impatience from punters and feelings of “Why Are We Waiting?” filtered through the crowd like the Mexican wave.

However, a rousing rendition of “No Hope” meant any tardiness was quickly forgiven.

A mix of material from debut effort, “What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?” and latest offering, “Come Of Age” released in September of this year shaped the set.

Frontman Justin Young looked confident and cool throughout, chatting comfortably with fans between tracks but the power from his bandmates’ instruments meant that he wasn’t always audible.

Despite being released just over a year ago, the best bits from The Vaccines debut album all got an airing and some are already on their way to being signature songs; “Wetsuit” was embraced like an old friend and “Post Break Up Sex” prompted a mass singalong.

Latest single, “I Always Knew”, released last Sunday and indie dancefloor-friendly, “Norgaard” closed the zesty show.

The Vaccines have catapulted to mainstream success at a speed that would make Red Bull jealous and proved in Glasgow that they have the live good to back up their much-loved recordings, fast becoming a must-see live act.

“Come Of Age” is available now.

Latest Single, “I Always Knew” is also available now.
