Vacations' brand new single Panache is out now, ahead of their new album Forever In Bloom which drops on the 18th of September, 2020 through Believe.
Hooky from the get go, 'Panache' - with production once again care of Holy Holy's Oscar Dawson - hitches itself to the mast of a strutting bass groove that sets sail toward Vacations' most radio friendly chorus yet. Doubling down on Campbell Burns' plangent delivery, Sarah Sykes from Sydney band Sunscreen brings an ethereal air to the proceedings with a sweet vocal collab delivering 'Panache' to what is the highest watermark of their creative tide thus far.
Panache also features fellow Novocastrians Craterface and teddie along with the aforementioned Sykes. Burns adding that he always envisioned inviting collaboration on the track. "I had Sarah Sykes and Craterface in mind for this track and as soon as they came into the studio, the entire song started to come together. Having Oscar on production duty really helped solidify that initial groove too while adding new elements. There's saxophone from Teleah (teddie) throughout which I adore as well."
Forever In Bloom, the band's second full-length record - which will also be available in limited edition yellow splatter vinyl - is the culmination 12 months hard work, defining and refining the band's guitar pop blueprint. For Vacations the process has been both illuminating and edifying, lighting the way forward and making good on the promise made to each other that Vacations was indeed a project worth fighting for.
Vacations are poised, ready to reap the positive momentum both the new single "Panache" and the album Forever In Bloom will have on the band's steadily growing local fan base and huge contingent of international believers.
