Painting in broad strokes of lush guitars, bright melodies, cinematic and intimate lyrics, and shimmering rhythms, Vacation Manor—Nathan Towles and Cole Young—often pose and ponder a key question during the creative process:
“What’s the location?,” asks Nathan. “Songs always bring me to a very specific place. So, we try to put listeners in a physical space. Their ears inform where their imaginations go. Maybe you’re cruising on the freeway or walking around during the blue hour. There’s introspection, but it’s communal.”
Since 2016, the Virginia duo have carefully built this gateway. Their 2016 debut EP, Girl, Say, yielded fan favorites such as “A Toast and a Spirit” and “Careless.” On its heels, 2018’s Everything I Can’t Say Out Loud elevated their total streams past 25 million. In 2019, they reteamed with Girl, Say producer Kyle Cummings and wrote and recorded their new EP, Thoughts In Progress, Pt. 1 [Nettwerk].
“It was really collaborative and different,” says Cole. “Kyle brings out a lot of our individual perfectionism and our strongest qualities. This time around, we had demos and thoughts in place. So, we’ve got a wider picture of what a song is supposed to look like before we even start working on it.”
In the end, Vacation Manor relocate listeners somewhere wonderful via Thoughts in Progress.
Cole leaves off, “When you’re listening to this, maybe you’ll hear part of your own story in the songs and even understand it a bit better.”
