Fresh from the release of his well-received cancel the party EP and short film, suburb dwelling classical-pop wunderkind johan lenox connects with fellow fast riser Rence on infectious new single, i need a vacation, which is accompanied by a stunning music video featuring both artists. The relatable single showcases both bright lights in full beam as they connect in wonderful fashion. Speaking on the release, johan lenox states:
A year ago I was at Six Flags, riding roller coasters alone as I often do, and I discovered Rence’s music on Spotify. I was a huge fan of his writing and production so at the suggestion of our mutual friend, producer Frans Mernick, we all got together to write this song. We bonded over our mutual distaste for toxic relationship situations where someone talks about the other behind their back yet keeps wanting to hang out. We combined Frans’s drum production with Rence’s sampling ideas and structural sensibilities and my orchestral sounds. We built on each other’s vocal melodies and lyrics, changing and evolving the song numerous times until it became what it is now.
