Their first release showcased a forward thinking perspective on pop-song structure within an experimental rock frame, and Permanent Vacation continues that narrative with a more focused collection of songs. The band flexes its technical muscle across eight tracks, pairing intricate transitions and rhythmic shifts with heavy riffs that charge these exhilarating songs. Their sound is fully realized with the assistance of engineers James Whitten and Nick Pope of HighTower Recording, who help document the band’s precision and depth. Permanent Vacation shows that Static Masks are not a math-rock band trying to be accessible, but rather a band untethered to rigid genre expectations.
