If you told me the new single from Broadcaster was a song on some random 90's soundtrack or compilation, I would have 100% believed you. "Vacation Days" is the most 90's thing I've heard in decades. It sounds like it belongs on the Empire Records or Clueless soundtrack, or a compilation from Geffen Records you bought for $4.00 to hear a few unreleased songs. It would have been that song you loved but could never find anything else about the band in the pre-internet age. "Vacation Days" has that same upbeat poppy alt-rock sound you'd hear with bands like Gin Blossoms or Letters to Cleo. Even though it's a brand new song, Broadcaster have given us this brand new slice of nostalgia that has me pulling out my copy of DGC Rarities Vol. 1.
You can listen to "Vacation Days" below. Joyride +3 is due out October 8 on Jumpstart Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Broadcaster, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
