“You’re so cool when it’s so hot” and “you’re so hot when it’s so cold” sings Brooklyn’s Vacances on his irresistibly hooking new single Cool, a fine follow up to earlier this year’s Human. I can’t help but wish the Brooklyn by way of Bay Area artist was singing about me as I bop my way around the room in joy to this vivacious electro and alt pop piece. As on Human, Vacances’ sun kissed dalliance and slaphappy shenanigans evoke The Limousines, combined with the synth laden tendencies and bright catchy vigor of Gentleman Hall (in particular, their song Sail Into The Sun). If anything is ‘cool’ here (and trust me, it’s not me), it’s this Vacances tune. Cool can be purchased now from iTunes.

I can’t but be drawn to Human, a song from self proclaimed “indie surf-pop-punker” Vacances, a Brooklyn transplants and Bay Area native. Human is a luscious burst of dark wave inflected electropop and an irresistible first encounter with Danny Lannon, the man behind the music magic. It’s as if The Limousines have crossed paths with 80′s new wave a la Depeche Mode or The Cure on this glamorous glittering song, which Vacances wrote after that tragic Oakland warehouse fire. Human will be out as a single on February 17th. I’m almost sad we’ve lost such fine talent to Brooklyn. It would’ve been nice to call Vacances our own, still.
