Global Band of the Week: Vacationer

by on August 12, 2014

For Vacationer brainchild Kenny Vasoli, the concept of relief is a simple if inconvenient truth.  “Whether through love, exploration, or relaxing, we all strive for relief,” he says.  “It’s just a quick flip-of-the-switch away, and I think it’s good to be reminded of that.”  Vacationer’s second album is, in some ways, a direct homage to that ideal.  From the soulful bliss of lead single “The Wild Life” to the dreamscapes of album closer “Onward & Upward,” Relief proves Vasoli’s theory with skillful ease.
