Track of the Day #1027: JW Francis - Going Home to a Party

New York’s JW Francis returned yesterday with the latest cut from their forthcoming album! ‘Going Home to a Party‘ is a fun, lo-fi jangle-pop track with an effortless, nostalgic vibe to it (in true JW Francis style). The track is taken from JW Francis’ album ‘Dream House’ which is set for release on 27th January 2023.

Speaking of the track, JW Francis has said: “’Going Home to a Party’ is a song that has a lot of references in it. The beat for example is a sped up version of the beat from The Whole of the Moon by the Waterboys. Similarly I wanted the video to have a lot of references related to how people perceive me. I’ve been compared to all three of the main characters in the video: Steve from Blues Clues, Mr. Rodgers, and Bob Ross. It’s always joked that these three pillars of wholesomeness have a dark side so I wanted to bring that dark side to life and portray them cartoonishly getting into hijinks. Like all of my videos though, goodness wins in the end.”
