No Vacation is an Indie/Dream-Pop band that combines the novel sounds of college nostalgia and surf-tinged bedroom pop. What began as a sunny San Francisco dorm-room duo in early 2015 by frontwoman Sabrina Mai, quickly evolved into a band as Marisa Saunders and Nat Lee entered the fold. Eventually, Harrison Spencer joined and No Vacation migrated from their familiar garage practice spaces to the studio, where they recorded their second release Summer Break Mixtape. This would lead up to their initial break-up later that year. After a year of anticipation, shows under various names, and a few line-up changes, James Shi was added to solidify the official reunion of the 5-piece.
To jumpstart their return, No Vacation will premiere their new single “Mind Fields” on February 23rd with Topshelf Records. Heavily influenced by the break-up itself, “Mind Fields” highlights the wistful yet buoyant sounds from their upcoming album, set to release in June 2017.
The Bilinda Butchers
The bilinda butchers are a dream pop duo from San Francisco who take their name from Bilinda Butcher of My Bloody Valentine. Comprised of multi-instrumentalists Michal & Adam, the group writes songs that contrast idealistic nostalgia with romantic uncertainty and sorrow.
Tim Atlas is an Indie/Alternative singer-songwriter from the Bay Area, currently living in Los Angeles. Tim has found musical inspiration in the airy falsettos of Damien Rice and the endearingly wistful pop melodies of Feist. Following his stint on season 9 of NBC's The Voice, he released "Wander," a single that premiered at #19 on the Spotify Global Viral Charts with over 500,000 streams since its release in July 2016. When Atlas isn't performing as a solo artist, he works as a producer and writer in his home studio. He is currently gearing up to record his first album, incorporating a more rhythmic, soulful approach, without straying from the organic folk elements his fans have grown to love.
