European Vacation is the 70s-ish keyboard-based stylings of Bryn Rieger (Mammoth Graveyard, Burning Kettles). Sad pop surf and nuanced chorussy nostalgia, like if Robert Smith listened to too much Dick Dale and had less emotions so he just played Sunday sets on the outskirts of Vegas.
Percussive familial pop.
Meeting in early 2016, Zachary Rempel and Nate DeAvila began writing and recording music in houses with cheap rent and the basement of a Mennonite church. The music is heavily inspired by other homegrown recordings done by bands like Daughter, Bon Iver or Darwin Deez, influenced by their simplicity and uncleanliness. Several guitars, a cello and a loop pedal make up the core of the music, lyrics inspired by growing up and awkwardness. 'Night' was released in January of 2017 and they have since played shows around Winnipeg.
