No Vacation is an indie/dream pop band that combines the novel sounds of college nostalgia and surf-tinged bedroom pop. What began as a sunny San Francisco dorm-room duo in early 2015 by front-woman Sabrina Mai, quickly evolved into a band as Marisa Saunders and Nat Lee entered the fold. Eventually, Harrison Spencer joined and No Vacation migrated from their familiar garage practice spaces to the studio, where they recorded their second release Summer Break Mixtape. This would lead up to their initial break-up later that year. After a year of anticipation, shows under various names, and a few line-up changes, James Shi was added to solidify the official reunion of the 5-piece.
