Nashville duo Homes at Night are back today with a brand new song entitled “Midwest Summer”. Songwriters Hank Compton and Aksel Coe have crafted another track that delicately blends anthemic alternative rock instrumentation with hazy indie-pop melodies to follow up recent release “Texaco”. The band have been pretty busy recently having just finished back-to-back tours with Saint Motel and Arts Fishing Club in between the release of the two singles.
Midwest Summer’ really feels like two different songs melded into one. It’s an approachable, nostalgia-bomb in the indie-alt vein that feels perfect for late night drives on a humid Summer night. But it’s also a melancholic song that follows the story of two former lovers visiting their hometown at the same time, seeing if they can reignite their high-school flame through the lens of nostalgia. As we are on tour in the Midwest currently, this song has become the soundtrack of our travels and we can’t wait to share it!”Homes at Night
Homes at Night blur the boundaries between genre and generation with their alternative pop/rock anthems. It’s a sound that’s both nostalgic and modern, layered with organic instruments, synth-driven soundscapes, cinematic hooks, percussive pulse, and story-driven songwriting that nods to their Nashville roots while simultaneously pushing far beyond them. With multiple US tours under their belt, as well as press support from tastemakers like idobi Radio and Atwood Magazine, Homes at Night are an exciting new band on the rise.
