Following the release of their debut EP ‘Redevelopment‘ last Autumn, Bristol based Home Counties are back with their latest single ‘Modern Yuppies‘! In true Home Counties style, it’s a super-catchy, angular offering but this time with a disco, synth-pop twist. ‘Modern Yuppies’ is an eccentric track that sees the band kick things up a notch with playful, flamboyant synth use, something the band have experimented a lot with across 2020.
Speaking of the track Will Harrison from the band has said: “Synths and drum machines were already something we were very keen to explore and 2020 provided us with an unexpected amount of free time to experiment. We dialled the disco influences up to the max and totally embraced that 70’s-cop-drama vibe for this pair of stand-alone singles.”
“The song is a comparison between the young urban professionals of the 1980s to those of today. Ultimately however, they are both plagued by the same condition – of constantly needing more.”
