Today, Virginia-based indie pop/rock duo Vacation Manor —Nathan Towles and Cole Young— are teaming up with VENTS for the premiere of their new single “Parachute” from their upcoming self-titled debut album, out June 11th. On Vacation Manor, the duostitch together shared and personal experiences in a patchwork of vibrant and vivid alternative anthems wrapped in shimmering guitars, glistening keys, upbeat sunny grooves, and iridescent melodies. Latest single “Parachute” drifts above a steady beat, nostalgic piano, and clean guitar as the vocals flutter from vulnerable verses into a high register hum.
About the song, the band comments “‘Parachute’ is a song we’ve been after for a while. The whole feel of it comes from our 90’s alt rock influences that manage to blend a head-bobbing and upbeat groove, underneath a layer of melancholy. It took a lot of re-writing and re-recording to get it to sound how we were imagining it, but we’re really proud of what we captured. This song fills a very specific role on the album, but we tend to think that about all of the songs on this record. There are albums that zero in and explore a particular sonic landscape, and others that feel like taking a drive across the country and you’re in a new place by the end. To me, this record feels like it takes you for a ride.”
