Pop punks Homebound come of age in new EP
Tossing their hats (well, their snapbacks and beanies) into the ring with debut E.P ‘Coming Of Age’,Homebound have most definitely made a strong case for jumping the queue. Rounded off by guitarists Tom Mellon and Chris Wheatley, bassist Joe Durrant and drummer Sam Taylor, Homebound have spent a year behind closed doors, writing, writing and writing some more, until they were ready to share their infectious fruits with the world. “The majority of the release was written over the past year in Tom’s bedroom,” recalls Boughton; “Tom would write the skeletons with programmed drums, and we’d send vocal ideas back and forth… Overall we wrote about 11 tracks, and then focussed it down to the final six for the EP. And although it is just an EP, it feels like a hugely satisfying milestone for us. It feels like we have been writing for an eternity.”
The EP drops on July 21st.
