HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?
Jack and Brendan were just hanging out spitting out random names and Vacation Club came out. They both looked at each other and were like “that’s dope”. Told Helena and she was keen. In hindsight, we were lucky that the name fit our vibe so well.
WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?
Funnily enough as Vacation Club, we haven’t had our first gig. We are in some ways super lucky that platforms like Spotify and Apple Music have allowed us to gain exposure without gigging. That isn’t to say that we don’t want to tour, it’s definitely in the plan.
Jack - Old band my first gig was in Los Angeles.
Brendan - Annandale Hotel. 20 People
WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?
Since we haven’t toured we haven’t had a day off.. but every time we have a break from a writing session in LA we somehow always end up shopping for vintage clothes on Fairfax and ending the day eating at Jon & Vinnys.
WHAT IS SOMETHING - APART FROM YOUR PHONE OR WALLET - THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?
Helena - I always carry at least one chapstick on me, in my purse currently I have about 4 chapsticks despite the fact that most of them aren’t even being used!!
Jack - Well it sounds like a bit of a cheat answer.. but, a powerbank so my phone doesn’t die haha
Brendan - moisturiser
WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU'D WRITTEN?
Jack - Pretty much anything Chris Martin has written...
Helena - I would second jack on that definitely but a song that is currently making me jealous the moment I listen to it wishing I wrote it is See through by the band CAMINO
Brendan - The Beatles “Let It Be”
WHAT'S BEEN THE MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?
Helena - I think the boys out beat me on this one hahaha I’ve yet to experience a surreal fan moment
Brendan - playing with Selena Gomez
Jack - without a doubt sharing the stage with Selena Gomez
