[SONG OF THE DAY] Vacationer - "Magnetism"

Not sure how I missed that Vacationer was putting out another album but now that I'm up to speed and #blessed to have found the album sitting in my inbox I am happy to report that June 22, the release date for Mindset, is going to be one of the loveliest days of your life. Since I'm still trying to find a better rhythm for SOTD and ease myself back into updating a lot in general, I'm not sure if I'll get to a full review of this album. In spite of that, I will tell you that I have been reaching for this record a lot because listening to it just makes me feel lighter. When approaching this record, Vacationers Ken Vasoli said, "I wrote about concepts that would hopefully benefit my mental wellbeing." So like....he fucking nailed it...at least for me. When it comes to "Magnetism" specifically, there's this dizzying and somewhat hazy energy to the song that is reminiscent of what it's like when you first fall in love with someone. 

Be sure to check out the other singles they've dropped from Mindset. "Strawberry Blonde" and "Being Here" are both equally magical. As if you weren't already in an excellent mindset from, "Magnetism", I have even more good news for you: the band will be hitting the road in July with Sego! That's going to be such a nice pairing! Definitely worth every penny for tickets.
