The single is “Monday’s blues and Friday’s booze all mixed into one sentimental pint of coffee” as Dylan Morgan explains, the brainchild behind the band. The track was inspired by the story of an aspiring musician who refuses to give up in the face of adversity. It has all the makings of an infectious indie pop track, filled with upbeat melodies, jangly guitars, flawless harmonies and a singalong chorus. Dylan’s vocal takes centre stage, immediately drawing you in with his powerful resonance.
Dylan formed HOMES in Cardiff back in 2015, with the rest of his band members alternating regularly. Since then they’ve gained support from the likes of BBC Radio Wales’ Adam Walton, Jamie Owen and Bethan Elfyn, Louder Than War, With Guitars and Buzz Magazine to name a few. With their debut single Float Like An Animal having steadily made waves in the West, HOMES are keen to introduce their addictive sound to the rest of the UK and beyond.
Black Gold by HOMES is out now via Outback Recordings and is available to buy on iTunes.
