Full of mesmerising grooves, blissful pop melodies, and infectious energy, the 5-track EP is captivating journey from start to finish.
As an overall concept, the «Vacation» EP is a mediation on what it means to escape from routine. Whether it’s a physical getaway or just being with someone who makes you feel at your best is up to the listener’s personal interpretation. «For us, ‘Vacation’ is us trying to be our best to our partners, friends, families, and a reminder to enjoy ourselves», Foley write. «It’s us being confident in our creativity and aspiring to be better».
Foley is the late night conversations, not-so-existential crises, and the genuinely unbreakable friendship of 20-somethings Ash Wallace and Gabriel Everett. Honest to a fault, Foley have quickly picked up a fanbase of young like-minded listeners for their confessions of love, loss and learning. With a sibling like closeness at their core, their transparency with each other and their audience makes for a hilarious, emotionally authentic and carefree relationship that will have you laughing and crying in the same breath.
«Vacation» follows in the footsteps of their 2020 debut EP, «On My Conscience», which saw huge success across commercial radio and streaming platforms, hitting #10 on the NZ Album Charts, and plastered the pair across multiple Spotify playlist covers. In addition to their streaming success, Foley have graced New Zealand’s largest New Years festival Rhythm & Vines 3 times, most recently playing a main-stage slot on New Year’s Eve.
