It’s an age-old adage that you should write about what you know. Tumultuous highs and dizzying lows might hit us all on occasion but, for the most part, life is spent embracing the everyday: walking the familiar streets of your town, noticing the subtle changes, working out your place within the world around you.

And so, when the members of HOME COUNTIES sat down in 2019, drawing a line under an adolescence of previous musical projects and setting their sights on something new, they decided to prioritise the beauty in the ordinary, and put it front and centre.

Growing up in a small village outside of Buckinghamshire, Will Harrison (vocals/ guitar), Conor Kearney (guitar), Lois Kelly (vocals/ synths), Bill Griffin (bass), Barn Peiser Pepin (synths/ percussion) and Dan Hearn (drums) had all been friends since childhood. Over the years, various combinations of their number had played together in different formations, from the ‘School of Rock’ inspired covers band that Will and Dan began aged 10, to an array of more ‘serious’ outfits as they left school and went to university. However Home Counties, they knew from the off, would have a different mindset at its core.
