Philadelphia rockers Vacationer are drawing listeners in with their groovy 1960s-inspired, synth-driven single, “Magnetism.” The first release since their sophomore album Relief back in 2014, it’s safe to say Vacationer made it well worth the wait.
Lead singer and bassist Ken Vasoli reveals the song came about easily and quickly, rejuvenating his joy for making music. The song describes the intimate connection he shares with his girlfriend, expressing the endless support and devotion he feels for her. Inspired by one of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short stories, “Magnetism” is a classic yet unique version of a love song.
Despite their three-year hiatus, it’s clear Vacationer has not lost their musical touch. Starting with a basic rhythm, “Magnetism” eventually leads into an electronic and synth-heavy chorus–a classic element of Vacationer’s music.
Eventually fading into a cosmic-sounding and instrumental ending, Vacationer again leaves listeners on their toes, ending the song mid-note. We dig it, and you will too. Give it a spin:
