Violent Soho - Vacation Forever

Violent Soho - Vacation Forever
‘Vacation Forever’ was written while lead guitarist and vocalist Luke Boerdam was at his parent’s house, after a major upheaval in his life. “I guess lyrically I’m trying to describe a certain frustration. No matter what I did in life I always ended back there.” “Back there” is in reference to his childhood bedroom, where he wrote Violent Soho’s first record, and where he ended up after being dropped by their American label in 2010. “I was back here again years later - the same damn f**king room!”

Lyrically the song came together quickly creating a song that is as honest as it is gritty, seeping into your veins like the dusty heat of a summer’s afternoon. Boerdam says that writing the song opened up their sound, allowing them to play with influences they previously didn’t have space for, including one of Boerdam’s favourite pedals, “a Japanese pedal called the “Bananana””, who’s shimmery distortion features heavily at the end of the track.

From the raw alt-rock energy of Boerdam‘s vocals to the masterfully conducted relationship between the melodic and rhythmic guitar components, the result is a classic Violent Soho track, packed full of frustration, irony and wit.

About this track...

Crashing back into the collective conscious of Australia, ‘Vacation Forever’ is everything you want from Mansfield’s favourite sons. A bold, much-needed dose of every day Australian honesty with lyrics like “There’s a baby boomer across the street and it won’t stop staring at me” and “Cause they all want the good life, but I just want to breathe”.
