Winnebago Vacation, the solo project from New York’s Eli Frank (guitarist and vocalist of TOP Nachos) is gearing up to release their debut full-length album, Camp Somewhere on August 20th. Today, we’re bringing you a finial teaser of the album with the new single, “Savings.”
Spearheaded by emotive vocals and somber guitar work, “Savings” takes listeners on a vulnerable journey as Eli details the emotional separation that occurs when someone choses money and wealth over friendship and human connection. The mellow, moody track is perfect for summer nights and long drives as the warmer weather begins to fade into autumn.
“Savings” follows previously released tracks, “Break Down” and “Shack” from the upcoming album. Listen to it now below!
Of the new track, Eli said, “I wrote Savings about people who aspire to be rich over all else. They’re willing to lose friends and emotional support in the pursuit of wealth, supplanting meaningful relationships. It’s ambiguous, but the second verse, in my mind, is about a greedy person committing some sort of horrible crime and needing to run off to another country. During this time, when they need support the most, no one is there because they’ve cut too many people off from their life with their greed. In the end money did nothing but isolate”
Since Winnebago Vacation’s conception in Spring of 2017, the folk-goth project has released a 7 song self-titled EP and a split with Schmave, while also touring extensively. Mixing elements of experimental rock, synth pop, and folk, with lyrics that touch on gothic themes and introspection, Winnebago Vacation is a unique and refreshing take on indie rock. With sleepy riffs, melancholy vocals and atmospheric synths, Eli has cultivated a sound that has left an impression on the New York DIY scene.
Their debut album, Camp Somewhere is out on August 20th via Lonely Ghost Records. The release show will be at Trans Pecos in New York on September 19th, with Nervous Dater, Drobakid, Verdigrls, Debbie, and a super secret guest.
