Witterings from an old indie kid

No Vacation – Phasing

Phasing is an interesting and experimental release from San Francisco’s No Vacation and builds on 2017’s Intermission EP which I described as the soundtrack for an indie club’s chill out room.

Plenty of work has gone into this EP during the last two years. It features collaborative writing alongside each band member making contributions “outside of their primary instrument”. The songs here each feature a distinct structural turn as part of their composition.

Well that hard work has paid off handsomely as there are some excellent moments on this EP. These range from the lush strings on Estrangers, the lovely jangling guitars on Out Of Place and the wistful Days. Overall Phasing has a strong sense of regret, whilst at the same time, pleasure running all the way through it making it a very worthy listen.

Phasing is out now on vinyl, cassette, digital formats and erm, Fanny Pack formats. Shield your eyes from the garish Bandcamp page and order from here.
