With Phantogram like trip-hop based rhythm, spacey and ghostly samples and a distinct male vocalist, Vacationer creates a lush, dream pop relaxing environment of neither highs nor lows. While nothing really jumps out at you, no emotional outbursts or building climaxes, “Trip” finds itself a cozy place on the couch and just relaxes there, dwelling on its simple melodic chorus and old-timey intro.
Baltimore based Vacationer is set to open for The Naked and Famous at the 40 Watt on March 31st which should be an exciting night leading up to in and into April Fools Day. It’s only $13 so why wouldn’t you go to see two great bands? In the meantime get pumped with “Trip.”
