LA pop-rockers HUNNY have shared a reimagined version of “Homesick” from their EP of the same name released in July.
The remix, by LA indie-pop duo slenderbodies (Max Vehuni & Benji Cormack) fabricates a celestial soundscape that pairs frontman Jason Yarger’s vocals with pulsating synths and warm guitar harmonics that transform the track into a lighthearted dream-pop tune.
Over the pandemic, the four members of HUNNY collectively made nearly 100 demos that became the cohesive compilation of the Homesick EP, produced by Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, The Linda Lindas.) The title track came to be as guitarist Jake Goldstein was literally at home sick when he wrote the original demo during quarantine.
With the word itself being polysemantic, the band finds that the song can take on a few different meanings. Lead vocalist/guitarist Jason Yarger recalls:
“It started as this cheeky little tune but when we started fleshing it out as a real track it started to morph into a bit more. It turned partly into some sort of love letter to touring and how much we’d missed it after nearly two years of not being on the road. I personally felt like I was going backwards – not touring and working a day job. I wanted my life back. I was homesick.”
HUNNY will be going on tour supporting State Champs starting November 11 in Cleveland and ending December 10 in Albany, NY. Tickets are available here.
