The five-piece band Two Year Vacation describes itself as a “Swedish band making delicious pop music” and this description could not be summed up better. Coming from a country where you get less hours of sun compared to more Southern countries and therefore probably quite some melancholical moments are bound to occur. And while the current feeling of missing the carefree attitude still hangs heavily over our everyday’s life, the longing for positive vibes and all that belongs to being human makes the heart burn.
This bittersweet state also somehow occurs in the new single “Majored In Broken Hearts” which tells of a (broken) love. Packed in light-footed, airy sound, while the somehow rough vocals drives the songs catchy they definitely serve up a feel good slice of indie pop.
Vocalist Jacob explains: “The song being an anthem to the moment of unveiling. The turning of the tides of being caught up in the hype. A person conquers your entire universe only to be stripped down from the altars of supremacy by a poorly pronounced word of high school French. It’s embracing this moment for three minutes and twelve seconds. The death of the honeymoon. The hashtag no filter. It’s Kim Jong Un queing for milk at the supermarket. It’s judgemental and lacking any self reflection. It’s naive, confident and catchy. A lethal combination.”
