The Mowgli’s: “Vacation”

How we all wish for a vacation right now! Indie pop band, The Mowgli’s, share our longings in “Vacation.”

The newest single from the LA based band reminds us of some of our favorite summer hits. It has a classic, almost oldie sound that could make any listener smile. The music is laid-back, but the guitar and electronic bridge pump up the energy and make the track upbeat.

The vocals, shared by all members of The Mowgli’s, are fun and easy to sing along with. Their repetitive, yet simple background verses (it’s literally la la la..) layered under lead singer Josh’s voice make the song distinct and also adds to its old school feel. The lyrics remind us of the anxiety and ecstasy of preparing for a getaway. Josh is counting down as he fantasizes about all the things he’s looking forward to. While you may still be in self-quarantine, we hope this track offers a moment of escape!

If the Mowgli’s have a familiar sound, you may have heard their music on a number of shows! The band has performed on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and others. They even performed the theme song for Disney’s Animated series “Big City Greens”! While you can’t watch them perform in person, the band has been active virtually. They’ve performed remotely while in quarantine.
