The title track of The Vaccines' Melody Calling EP was penned by frontman Justin Young during Christmas 2012. He told NME: "I'd built loads of vocal stuff around the main chorus vocal, and then ended up muting the main part so all that's left is the harmonies – that's why they're all falsetto. It moves in a different way. It's not one you bang your head to; maybe you sway a bit more."
The song's music video finds bassist Arni Arnason plucking up the courage to call a woman on the phone. It was shot on East London's Regents Canal and in the London Fields outdoor swimming pool.
"Piano Man" was inspired by Billy Joel's time playing at a piano bar in Los Angeles. The "real estate novelist" was a guy who always talked about writing a book, but spent all his spare time in the bar.
