No Vacation
No Vacation
No Vacation began in early 2015, and quickly received attention for the nostalgic bedroom-pop sounds off of their debut mixtape, Amo XO, and surf-rock single, “Draem Girl”. A few months following the release of their second mixtape, Summer Break, No Vacation went on an indefinite hiatus. The five-piece officially reassembled in 2017 after playing shows under various names and a few line-up changes.

Since their reunion, No Vacation has released 2 singles, “Mind Fields” and “Yam Yam”, off of their new EP Intermission, which is set to be release with Topshelf Records this November. As they transition out of San Francisco, No Vacation will bring the novice “wavy-gravy dream-pop” sounds of Intermission to Brooklyn.

"A misty rock song with dreamy hooks."
-The Fader (on "Mind Field")

[In their debut mixtape "Amo XO"], released last April, the songs in it like "August", "Beach Bummer", and "Lovefool" are the soundtrack lazy days when the sun shines too hot and all you want to do is spend a day in a room or be on a road trip together with your friends.
-NYLON Indonesia
Hot Flash Heat Wave
Hot Flash Heat Wave
San Francisco-based dream pop/garage rock band Hot Flash Heat Wave are today announcing their forthcoming sophomore LP entitled Soaked (out June 2, 2017 via OIM Records) as well as sharing the lead single/video via EARMILK.
Acting as our first shimmering taste of Soaked, "Gold Years" is laced with candied hooks, fuzzy guitar and new wave-esque tones. With a playful sophistication, Hot Flash Heat Wave remind us of The Drums' strong pop mentality and Smith Westerns' slacker attitude.
Hot Flash Heat Wave's Nathaniel Blum describes "Gold Years" as a song about catching himself "growing up too fast" as well as an exploration of "youthful bliss and mystery that carry on as we get older". The DIY-esque visual accompaniment in turn reflects these very sentiments, where the band took "imaginative scenarios that we had as kids and amplified them to an absurd degree".
The colorful LP in full was produced by Jeff Saltzman (who famously produced The Killers' Hot Fuss) and mixed by Eric Broucek (The Drums, DFA Records). Soaked will lead Hot Flash Heat Wave to embark on their first national tour this spring.
