Now Playing: Home Counties – ‘Dad Bod’

Thursday, July 2, 2020

Up-and-coming Bristol-based band Home Counties have this week unveiled their catchy brand new single ‘Dad Bod’. The track, which was shared via UK label Alcopop! Records, follows in the footsteps of their impressive debut single ‘Redevelopment’. Both singles are a preview of their upcoming debut EP Redevelopment, due for release on September 4th. 

Spanning just over two minutes in length, ‘Dad Bod’ is a danceable and addictive slice of post-punk. On the single, songwriter and vocalist Will Harrison said, "'Dad Bod' explores modern middle-class masculinity, with a particular focus upon the ‘progressive’ metropolitan man. The song initially takes a light-hearted standpoint listing the aesthetic traits and status symbols of modern men before moving on to address a darker side which is hidden behind the comfortability and respectfulness of a ‘Dad Bod’."
