DANBEATS – “Vacation Home”


DANBEATS‘ new single “Vacation Home” explores themes of escapism, and aptly crafts a soundscape that lures with such temptations; its Brazilian Tropicalia inspirations pair with a dreamy pop mystique and hooky vocal rise for a climactic sense of detail. DANBEATS describes the release as “about a digital nomad, enamored with a beautiful paradise, grappling with escapism, envy, and identity, loosely inspired by the Lotus Eaters (from Homer’s Odyssey).”

“Don’t make me go back to my home,” the vocals let out, then declaring they’re “on vacation,” as glistening guitar effervescence complements a yearning to stay on vacation — and never leave. Beachside ambience adorns the conclusion, and one can’t help but want to escape to the locale the track’s production crafts with its lushly enticing spell.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
