Humanity is blessed with a seemingly uncanny ability to reinvent and redeem itself. When tragedy or irrelevance rear their ugly heads, we simply push through and adapt with an evolutionary like finesse, continuing to wake up the next day, and the next, and the next.
Upon this premise Kenny Vasoli, former frontman of The Starting Line, has taken it upon himself to bless us with a new musical project, Vacationer. Vasoli’s sound has departed slightly from it’s glory days of pop-punk (R.I.P.) and appropriately arrived at chillwave. Critics are quick to liken Vacationer to another Vampire Weekend, with it’s similarly afro-cale taste and white guy croon. However I approximate them closer to San Diego’s TV Girl, minus all the lyrics about unsatisfying sex with your ex. All this to say you’ll be anything but unsatisfied with their recent full-length release Gone.
