Australian group Vacations have laid out plans for new album ‘No Place Like Home’.
The band went viral with their song ‘Young’, enjoying an incredible 12 months. Hitting London to support the Strokes at All Points East, they’ve earned co-signs from everyone from Lizzo to Rosalía during their remarkable breakthrough spell.
New album ‘No Place Like Home’ deals with shifts in both a personal and professional sense. Out on January 12th, the material was informed by singer Campbell Burns’ diagnosis for OCD, while it’s also the first project they’ve produced themselves.
“I had this loose concept of ‘No Place Like Home’ being an Americana-influenced album,” Campbell says of the album’s sonic inspirations. “I wanted to incorporate more pianos, acoustic guitars, Nashville tuning, and country-inspired lap steel, but then also bringing in drum machines and synths and finding a mix between the two.”
New single ‘Close Quarters’ is out now, a brisk return that expertly fuses light and shade. Unafraid to be honest, Vacations pepper this with a thirst for melodic that makes their music easy on the ear, and accessible in a warm, humane way.
Tune in now.
