Just like an amazing untouched getaway spot, Vacationer is a little bit of a secret‚ Äîone that's about to be discovered. Describing their sound is like a journey in itself: starting in the band's melodic hometown of Philly, stopping off for a few days in Canada for a dose of epic pop, swinging by Malibu to soak up those gauzy '60s harmonies then jetting to Tahiti to settle in with some islandtinged rhythms. In this overloaded musical climate, Vacationer requests that you, the listener, think of the album as an audio postcard. What you'll hear is a fresh new sound filled with rich sonic arrangements, mesmerizing beats and smart, daydream-inducing songs. You'll definitely sing along. It'll take you away from
your day for awhile. And that's precisely the point.

Recurring daydream: I don't often remember my dreams, but I did have one
recently that I won't soon forget. I was lying in bed and all of the sudden my
house had commenced a launch from the ground into the stratosphere, shaking
intensely all the while. I got up from my bed and walked out my bedroom door
into what looked like a large airplane cockpit. There was one lone man at the
controls, he had a huge, crazed grin on his face as he was piloting my house into
space. I loved it.
