Home Counties - Redevelopment

Bristol-based outfit Home Counties get to grips with gentrification on their debut single Redevelopment. With bass-slapping riffs and infectious melody lines the track wastes no time demolishing anything in its path as their punk-influenced sound. “‘‘Redevelopment’ is about town redevelopment,” the band explain. “Lyrically, the first half of the song takes the view of 1960s redevelopers, with the second half addressing the tearing down of modernist buildings and replacing them with gentrified luxury flats. The song points out that these ideas of nostalgia, urban decay and progress come around in cycles. Fundamentally, it suggests that we should be as wary of arguments against redevelopment, as of redevelopment itself.” Take a listen for yourselves below. 'Redevelopment' is the title track from the bands upcoming debut EP, produced by Theo Verney – due for release later this year.

Home Counties are: Will Harrison - lead vocals/guitar, Conor Kearney - guitar/vocals, Barn Peiser Pepin - synth/percussion/vocals, Sam Woodroffe - bass, Dan Hearn – drums
