New Releases Track Reviews

Home Counties release new single, ‘Modern Yuppies’

The track was released last week.

UK-based band, Home Counties, have released their latest single, ‘Modern Yuppies’.

Following on from their debut EP, ‘Redelevopment’, the new release builds upon the bands earlier, more guitar-heavy releases; bringing in synths and drum machines to create a funk-loaded dance track.

Speaking about the ‘Modern Yuppies’, singer, Will Harrison, said: “the song is a comparison between the young urban professionals of the 1980s to those of today.”

“It discusses the differences, the way that arrogance and conservatism have made way for self-doubt and socially ‘liberal’ political positions. Ultimately however, they are both plagued by the same condition – of constantly needing more.”

The new single is the band’s first of 2021, and is one of two self-produced singles to be released via Alcopop Records.
