No Vacation began their journey in 2015 with a pair of successful mixtapes that quickly established an identity of twangy nostalgia and cruisey shoegazing.
Not long after the release of the Amo XO and Summer Break Mixtape mixtapes, the budding San Francisco group disbanded indefinitely, playing among different lineups under various monikers before rebanding in 2017 under the name No Vacation.
Impressively, No Vacation has maintained its core lineup over the years, keeping in tact the quintessence of their sound—a calm, warm exuberance draped with Sab Mai’s signature subdued vocal style. And perhaps this is the key to understanding their new EP Phasing, titled in such a way that aptly captures the challenge of keeping oneself in phase with those around them.
It’s a balancing act that was first widely recognized when No Vacation broke through the noise with the pulsating, shoegazey pop number, Yam Yam. As the band’s renown soared, they collectively packed up their lives and moved from San Francisco to Brooklyn, seeking to begin anew and enter their next phase as a group with a newfound, solid footing.
Phasing is in some ways the purest distillation of this journey, featuring songs whose writing processes varied from years-long to weeks-long, demonstrating an artistic patience you can’t quite teach or learn, resulting in an instrumentally dynamic, multigenre foray that calls on the sounds of shoegaze, 90s alt rock, and Romantic Era string arrangements.
