BIO

Home Counties reside in Bristol and combine angular guitar work with furious percussion. Born from the evolution of previous incarnation, Haze - a band that made a name for itself supporting the likes of Shame and Pip Blom - the 5-piece make melodically rigid, socially-charged anthems that are lyrically tongue-in-cheek and scathingly satirical.

The first taste of their sound comes from debut single ‘Redevelopment’ - a raucously danceable earworm that has already caught the attention of Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1), Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music) and MattWilkinson (Beats 1). The single also marks itself as the title track from the bands impending debut EP, produced by Theo Verney (Egyptian Blue, Fur) and coming out via your good pals at Alcopop!

Speaking on the release of the new single ‘Dad Bod’ [listen now. It’s exceptional], songwriter and vocalist Will Harrison said: "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’."

“Ramshackle guitars dance around a series of weird and wonderful noises” say DIY Magazine… And we find it hard to disagree!
