Vacationer's Relief, the Philadelphia group's second LP, is clear in both title and intention. If Gone, the sunny electronic-pop act's 2012 debut, was about escape – whether through travel, photography or toasted sonic bliss – Relief unspools the strings of our wound-up existence with a cinematic wallop of positivity-oozing pop.

A collaboration between Kenny Vasoli and Body Language's Matthew Young and Grant Wheeler, Vacationer returns tighter and more powerful after spending the last two years touring with groups like Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Naked And Famous, Tennis, and Niki And The Dove, as well as making numerous festival appearances.

"Playing so many shows is probably our biggest influence on this album," says Vasoli. "Being out there every night with our wonderful fans and on the road everyday with Matt making beats next to me led to a deeper, more immediate energy in our music."

Relief, which was primarily recorded at Body Language's Landau Audio Design (LAD) studio in Brooklyn over the last year, is Vacationer gone widescreen. The kaleidoscopic, sampledelic world that intoxicated fans on original singles like "Trip" is still there, but the orchestration has become more muscular and expansive. Lead single "The Wild Life" mixes the influence of The Beach Boys, J. Dilla and LCD Soundsystem into a sonic mai tai. Animal Collective meets Hollywood's golden age on "Heavenly," while "Paradise Waiting" catapults the soulful chop of De La Soul into a club-ready summer anthem.

"Whether through love, exploration or relaxing, we all strive for relief," says Vasoli. "It's just a quick flip-of-the-switch away, and think it's good to be reminded of that."

Sego's Spencer Petersen and Thomas Carroll were both birthed in the burgeoning Provo, Utah music scene. However, finding inspiration in the dissonance that the towering structures and bustling city offers over the mountains and relative quiet of Provo, both relocated to an old pasta factory in downtown LA. Through various projects together, both founding members uncovered their distinct sound: lazy, grungy guitars with digital overlays and (refreshingly) honest lyrics. The band’s debut album surprises with angular guitars, complex arrangements and musings from an 80’s kid contemplating the void left from the misguided hope of our youth.
