Homes is a seven-piece, soul poppin’ rock n’ roll freight train of groove from Melbourne, Australia. Homes’ initial existence was as a two piece, made up of good friends and songwriters Fin Bradley and Henry Badger, who together not only passed high school, but wrote and workshopped the initial Homes repertoire before scouting some of Melbourne’s finest musicians to join the family.
The latest offering from the band, Did You Find What You’re Looking For? pits the hard hitting, fast paced live attitude and sound of 70’s surf rock with traditional hooks and grooves picked straight from the crates of soul records. Vocals dripping in Hendrix-esque swagger are teamed with axe-slaying riffs; blistering horns soar over the soulful grit of Rhodes keys, creating a track oozing with live energy. Homes’ sound is reminiscent of artists such as Saskwatch, Jimi Hendrix, The Cat Empire and David Bowie.
With irresistible groove and impeccable execution, Homes weave a bold and colourful musical patchwork that is sure not only to turn heads but also to break necks.
