Vacationer: Trip

Singer, bassist, and guitarist Kenny Vasoli has explored various genres and sounds in a multitude of rock combos and continues to do so, most recently in Philadelphia band Vacationer.

The video for the first single "Trip" off the 2011 debut album 'Gone' was uploaded to YouTube a week ago.  It's a great example of how a band/artist can reach out to the world by shooting a relatively low-budget visual companion piece to a great track that might otherwise not get the same degree of exposure due to the sheer volume of music makers offering up their goods in this day and age.

After a Hoboken, New Jersey gig on August 18 with Body Language, Vactioner takes a break before supporting Bombay Bicycle Club for several weeks around the U.S. in October, finishing with one show in Canada.  See link below for details:

The 'Trip' official music video was shot in Oahu, Hawaii by Dave Homcy on the very cool old-school-yet-very-21st century Lomography LomoKino analogue cameras.

An excellent live version of the same sunny song was shot in the studios of U. of Minnesota college station Radio K.
