Lunar Vacation release aqueous and charmingly psychedelic new single “Where Is Everyone?”

Ahead of releasing their debut album, Inside Every Fig Is A Dead Wasp on October 29th, Atlanta band Lunar Vacation have shared their final offering. “Where Is Everyone?” offers a gentler stride as singer Grace Repasky ponders a relationship set to fail. Speaking about the single they said:

It’s a story of two people who were too different to make a relationship work. Although both have good intentions and good hearts, some pairs don’t go well together. But there is something beautiful about trying out a relationship with someone who is incredibly opposite from you; there is a lot to learn, and you have to accept the outcome of what happens. Timing is everything.

Carrying forward the winsome charm of previous single “Mold”, “Where Is Everyone?” might not have a bombastic edge, but it still hooks you in. Beginning on what sounds like a plunge into multi-coloured waters, Repasky swims about the warbling guitar notes. The mix of lo-fi and hi-fi drums from Connor Dowd create rewarding layers worth concentrating on in themselves while the rising chorus and vocal harmonies burble up the tension. It’s like a controlled taking apart of a smoke bomb instead of an explosion, but it’s no less effective in surrounding your ears with an alluring kind of mist.

Lunar Vacation’s debut album Inside Every Fig Is A Dead Wasp arrives on October 29 through Keeled Scales (pre-order). You can find the band on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
