homes1Cardiff based HOMES is disguised in a cloak of the 60s and 70s richness, but with a smartly charming, modern urgency…To get a taste of their fine Rock n Roll, here’s the wonderfully bizarre and funky video -directed by Alex Priestley – for ‘Black Gold’ (out now via Outback Recordings), a solid tune “about the paradoxes of being a young musician”.

Hi HOMES! How are you today?

All is well thank you, especially when it’s beautifully sunny here in Cardiff.

Please introduce yourself to our readers:

HOMES begun its life out of the ashes of a previous jazz rock experiment called karedig, which is semi translation of the word niceness in welsh. The band lasted a year and before I knew it a heavier reincarnation was started to be jammed by new members. We were always rehearsing in houses and liked calling it homes with the mexican pronunciation so it stuck…as in ‘what’s up homes’?HOMES 1Describe your sound in five words:

Rock and or sushi rolls

What’s your new single ‘Black Gold’ all about?

It’s about the paradoxes of being a young musician…make of that what you will.

Any plans for an EP or album any time soon?

The EP has been recorded and will be released once the forthcoming singles have been let loose.

What’s the music scene like in Wales at the moment?

I can mostly vouch for the capital, but if Cardiff is anything to go by, the scene is currently thriving. Several bands are seriously breaking a new musical mould and its exciting to see what cool music these bands are going to come out with.

If you could collaborate with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?

Debussy – he’d write the most amazing arrangements.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

Still making awesome music and have a real amazing following who dig what we do.
