To celebrate the announcement of their new album, The Academic just released the first single from the album, titled “Permanent Vacation.” The album is set to drop January 12th and will be called Tales From The Backseat.
“Permanent Vacation” is dripping with summertime sun. From beachy guitar riffs to lyrics about a never-ending vacation, The Academic successfully puts sand between my ears despite the cold fall weather. “Permanent Vacation” includes all of the ingredients for the perfect feel-good indie rock. I’m convinced there might even be some vitamin C in here.
The band announced that they’ll be releasing a few other new tracks from Tales From The Backseat in the coming weeks. The Academic will also be supporting The Kooks next month on their European tour.
