Remember Sunny & Gabe? The Virginia duo who made dusty, energetic pop and soul music? Well, they’ve returned after a couple years of silence with “Vacay.” Their new song was previewed in a 30-second Coke commercial a couple weeks ago, and now the duo have liberated the entire song for our listening pleasure.

Over the last couple years, the Gabe half of Sunny & Gabe — Gabe Niles — executively produced D.R.A.M.’s Big Baby D.R.A.M. after producing the VA rapper/singer’s biggest hit pre-debut album, “Cha Cha.” He’s brought those honed skills — which saw some tuning from Rick Rubin — back to Sunny & Gabe and “Vacay,” where energetic drums and horns ring underneath Sunny’s vocals, which flow in and out of singing and conversing about having control in a relationship.

Listen to “Vacay” below.
