The concept for Vacances (pronounced vacancies) was started by Danny Lannon in 2015. He had been busy writing new material for his band of 8 years called The Frail and soon realized that it didn’t quite fit. He began collaborating with Allen Davis (Every Move A Picture/Rough Trade) on new material and decided to leave San Francisco to New York to pursue Vacances. They officially got their start in Brooklyn when Danny linked up with longtime friend Nic Gonzalez (Guitar) and new life partners Dan Bindschedler (Bass) & Chris Heinz (Drums). The group has a rich, colorful, and eclectic musical history. Nick spent time in The Restless Hearts (Adeline Records), Chris was in Walking Shapes, and Dan played in Robin Bacior. Collectively, they’ve each toured around the world, played major music festivals such as BottleRock, SXSW, BFD, CMJ, Treasure Island Music Festival, Noise Pop, and have been featured on MTV, Fuse, Interview Magazine, Electronic Musician, Paste, NME and more. Debuting their first show at The Bowery Ballroom Feb/2016, these guys are taking the New York underground by storm with a fierce determination to create a name around Vacances. They will be releasing their first single “Runaway” this Spring, followed by an EP (mixed by Patricl Brown -Toro Y Moi, Beat Connection) paired with additional east coast shows this Summer.
