“These 12 songs all showcase clear-eyed musical ambition.”

“… this lot could be your new favourite band.” – The 405
After releasing the stream of album track ‘The Edge of Control Was Black‘ and the brilliant single It’s All Over, Homework continue to exhibit their indie-electro credentials through their fantastic debut album.
It’s All Over illustrated the bands versatility and ability to produce upbeat, pop-inspired dance tunes akin to Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem, as well as the experimental, challenging moments that are offered up by tracks such as The Edge of Control Was Black. The pulsing “Wouldn’t You Love” further demonstrates the bands versatility and highlights their ability to write non-cliched elctro.
Having formed in the Scottish capital in 2009, Homework attracted immediate attention from the nation’s new music tastemakers, picking up airplay from BBC Radio One and BBC 6 Music as well as being selected to play the renowned T Break stage at T in the Park festival after only a handful of live shows.
Since then, the band has performed at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Rockness, Belladrum, Wickerman and T in the Park, supported the likes of Suuns, Wave Machines, The D.O.T (featuring Mike Skinner of The Streets) and Cashier Number 9 as well as showcasing at industry events including GoNorth, Glimps (Belgium) and Wide Days. Their recorded output and live shows have been consistently praised by radio (Lauren Laverne, Vic Galloway, Tom Robinson and Ally McCrae) as well as picking up support from The 405, The Arts Desk, The List, The Sunday Herald and many more.
Homework are: O. Kass (vocals, synths), R. Baird (vocals, guitar, synths), R. Kass (drums) and A. Dennis (bass). They hail from the exotic Scottish outposts of Inverness, Mull and Dumfries.
