ome Counties follow their debut EP with "Modern Yuppies", the first of two self-produced singles penned and recorded in the November lockdown and released on Alcopop Records.
It sees the band move away from the indie guitar-laden sound of their debut EP, and instead embrace their playful aptitude for synth-driven, post-funk hooks. Speaking on the shift in direction, singer Will Harrison commented: "We dialled up the disco influences and totally embraced that 70’s-cop-drama vibe for this pair of stand-alone singles. It definitely gives a clearer taste of where we’re heading”.
Since forming in January 2020, the band have distinguished themselves as a key act to watch, with radio support from Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders, alongside excellent press from The Line Of Best Fit, DIY Magazine, Clash Magazine, So Young Magazine, YUCK, Gigwise and more.
Home Counties are: Will Harrison (vocals/guitar), Conor Kearney (guitar/vocals), Barn Peiser Pepin (synth/percussion/vocals), Sam Woodroffe (bass/synth) and Dan Hearn (drums).
