Vacation, which includes the buoyant, bright track “Won’t Let You Go” featuring Bastille, follows a series of buzzed-about singles that racked up more than 750+ million streams, including the 2016 global hit “Capsize” with Emily Warren. Full of warm harmonies, propulsive melodies, spiraling synths, and pristine songwriting, Vacation is an album about searching. It examines the nuances of relationships and the idea of happiness and home – the duo’s hot-cold relationship with Los Angeles serving as one of the inspirations for the new songs.
FRENSHIP, whose brilliant production chops and diverse inspirations color their wide-angle indie-pop songs, garnered multiple gold and platinum certifications around the world for “Capsize,” and were picked as Spotify’s #2 Breakout Artist in 2016 and one of Shazam’s 2017 Emerging Artists. A festival favorite, they joined Bastille on their world tour before selling out their 2018 U.S. headline shows. Now, the duo returns poised to take their music to a whole new level.
