DEVO Is Dead Long Live HOME COUNTIES – Here’s New Trash And Slash Single ‘DAD BOD’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…


2 July 2020

After their notable debut single Redevelopment British up and coming post punk
team HOME COUNTIES confirm their huge potential with new score DAD BOD.

Songwriter and vocalist Will Harrison told about the fresh cut: “Dad Bod explores modern middle-class masculinity, with a particular focus upon the ‘progressive’ metropolitan man. The song initially takes a light-hearted standpoint listing the aesthetic traits and status symbols of modern men before moving on to address a darker side which is hidden behind the comfortability and respectfulness of a ‘Dad Bod’.”

Devo is dead, long live Home Counties, although for a few seconds you’ll hear the Gang Of Four‘s Damaged Goods intro riff. From there on its manic funk electricity bringing those innovative 70s ‘Are We Not Men?’ wackos to mind. Mind you, it’s not a copy/paste thing. These Bristol gunslingers’ buzz saw guitars cut and carve to the bone. Splintered rhythms and kooky vocals will have a strange effect on your body’s movements. Two minutes of
chopped turbulence. Two minutes of I want more of this slash and trash buzz. Definitely!

Bring it on…

Home Counties will release their debut EP on 4th September via Alcopop! Records featuring the aforementioned debut single Redevelopment
