Friday Jams: The Vaccines

Shar­ing ‘Fri­day Jams’ has been a part of The Clym­b’s office cul­ture for about a year now. The prac­tice was borne out of neces­si­ty. As all our mem­bers know, it can be dif­fi­cult to stay on task when you can’t wait to go out­side and use all the awe­some stuff you just bought on The Clymb. So, to rem­e­dy this sit­u­a­tion we start­ed dish­ing out jams — it’s sort of like soup club, except instead of lentils and leeks, we serve up pip­ing hot beats.

At the out­set it was most­ly old school rap: War­ren G, Ice Cube, Dru Down, etc. Now Fri­day Jams come from all over the son­ic map and we thought it would be fun to post songs that are trend­ing at the office, like this three-minute gem from the Vac­cines. It’s sol­id punk/pop tune that will help kick­start your week­end. If you’ve nev­er heard of them before, the Vac­cines are a Lon­don-based indie rock quar­tet that has been com­pared to the Strokes and coin­ci­den­tal­ly, they record­ed “Tiger Blood” with Albert Ham­mond Jr. in Decem­ber of 2011.
