The track is the latest to be taken from their forthcoming debut album, A Happy Medium, released on July 15, 2022 via Modern Sky UK.Commenting on the track – the video of which you can watch on this page - which continues the band's relationship with two-time Grammy award-winning producer Adrian Bushby, SHEAFS say that it is, "Sadly patriotic, ‘Vacancy’ describes a nationalist’s outlook and the narrow-mindedness that it often partners with."
"It’s a poem that reflects a stubbornness that, once established, can’t seem to be withdrawn”
