Vacation Manor - Thoughts In Progress, Pt. 1 [EP]
Virginia duo Vacation Manor—Nathan Towles and Cole Young—release their new EP, Thoughts In Progress, Pt. 1 and share an official video for the title track, which pairs a hummable riff with pensive lyrics. Of the song, the duo says, “It’s the solar system for this project. The title could mean so many different things. The song itself is about vulnerability, relationships, and communication before you have a finished thought. We felt like it defined what we wanted to say in this moment. The music represents our thoughts in progress right now.”
The band previously shared EP stand-out track “Apt. 4,” where breezy acoustic strumming and delicate drums give way to fluttering melodies. RIFF Magazine commented, “the track has a ’90s acoustic pop-rock feel to it with the bright chords and fluttering melodies,” while Cheers To The Vikings said “this song is going to leave you stuck on repeat for days,” and Independent Music Reviews called Vacation Manor “a lush indie pop duo.”
Painting in broad strokes of lush guitars, bright melodies, shimmering rhythms, and cinematic and intimate lyrics, Vacation Manor have been making music together since 2016. The indie rock/pop duo’s 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, which will be their first release via their new label home, Nettwerk.
