Vacation Forever is breezy and carefree on ‘Kamikaze Love’

Swedish songwriter Zacharias Zachrisson’s new one is today’s Neu Pick.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Vacation Forever.

Swedish songwriter Zacharias Zachrisson makes music as Vacation Forever, and his new one ‘Kamikaze Love’ feels like a carefree trip, free from worry.

The track comes complete with a woozy accompanying clip, adding psychedelic visuals to the track’s laid-back, lo-fi feel.

Speaking about the track, Zach says: “Welcome to the world of broken hearts, tropical emo and glue sniffing pop.

He also adds, pertinently: “They asked me to say something about this song and all I can say is that love is a dog from hell.”

Well then, get your eyes and ears around the dog from hell below.
