Words: Saam Das
With main project The Drums on hiatus, Jonny Pierce has been squirrelling away at a solo career of sorts over the last year or so. I've been looking forward to the final version of 'Home' since hearing an acoustic version recorded for Vogue - the wait is over, with a new recording surfacing on the latest 'Kitsune Maison' compilation.
The Vogue version of 'Home' offered a simplistic pop gem, and the new version carries forward the sentiment albeit adding several layers of instrumentation and backing vocals. The chorus, in particular, dazzles in its simplicity - "it won't be long till we can have a home". An uncomplicated message but a nonetheless catchy one. Have a listen to both versions of 'Home' below.
