The Vaccines are one of the buzz bands of 2011. Now they have an emotional video for the infectious Post Break Up Sex by Stephen Agnew, who wisely doesn't stray far from the theme of the song: trying to forget your ex by furiously shagging others is fundamentally flawed.

Having directed a number of impressive vids - like The Phenomenal Hand Clap Band's Baby - Stephen's first outing after signing with Gas&Electric is a parade of terribly upset post-coital people, while the band play on regardless - shot on 16mm by Dan Stafford Clark.

"Props to Tom and Jess at Gas&Electric," says Stephen. "Andy Knowles for art directing so well that no one could tell where the location stopped and the art direction began. Andy Soup for keeping me in check, and mad props to Dan Stafford Clark for directing the shit out of the photography. High fives all round."
