Music trades fashions and trends with such busy ardour it's like a streetmarket, but plaintive indie pop will never die. 'Yam Yam', the second single we've heard from San Francisco's No Vacation, is as plaintively indie as they come. Elegiacally distorted guitars rally around the uncertain vocals, challenging the equivocation stage of an early-doors relationship; the crossroads between twelfth-gear emotional investment, and the preemptive break-up.

The band know where they stand, "When morning comes our way, I'll be here to stay." It's sweet and sad, and tightly constructed, a promising signpost of what No Vacation have to offer; and if that's a spiritual successor to Camera Obscura then count me in.
