With each and every track that Vacationer puts out in anticipation for their debut album, Gone, I think I fall more and more in love.
They’re like a tropical sounding Good Old War, and they’re even Philly based. Enjoyable melodies, sunwashed guitars and that hint of Hawaii, it just makes up some of the best feel good music I’ve heard in awhile. And now until their release date, the band will be releasing a music video for every song on the album.
Listen to a couple of tracks they’ve recently made available for stream then check out their new video for the track, “Dreamlike.” And while you’re waiting for Gone to drop on the 20th, don’t forget to dig into the archives for some downloadable music.
I’ve been loving on Vacationer since they teased my ears with their previous (and only other song) “Trip.” Good marketing guys, because I’ve been dying for some more music and FINALLY they get around to posting up another song. Actually, according to the band they’re wrapping up recording and getting ready to push out a complete release. Exciting news.
“Gone” brings tropical rhythms and light percussion over dreamy yet aching vocals. Reminds me of a surfier version of Good Old War. But, the main reason why I’m into Vacationer? Their bio:
Most people do not take vacations often enough, some not at all. Quality vacations let us recapture that feeling of childlike exploratory freedom, which we seem to experience less and less frequently as we age. We can have fun without worrying about the familiar consequences presented to us regularly in life. Taking a good amount of time away from our daily stresses allows us to return to our lives refreshed and better equipped to handle whatever comes next.
The eastern seaboard’s foremost relaxation specialists have teamed up to compile this unique collection of serenity-inducing sonic arrangements. The audio program you are about to experience was designed with the sole purpose of relaxing the listener and sending their mind on a well-deserved trip. No airfare needed, no reservations. Simply settle in, relax and enjoy; Vacation from anywhere at anytime.
Brilliant. Watch their music video for their latest single and nab both tracks below.
