Paris Youth Foundation announce rip-roaring new single Home Is Where The Heart Is, alongside their first ever UK headline tour.
Home Is Where The Heart Is is the first release from the Liverpool five-piece since signing to Modern Sky UK. Recorded at the legendary Parr Street Studios and produced by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Courteeners, Vistas), Home Is Where The Heart Is is a track brimmed with sonic optimism, yet underpinned by a yearning for closure and comfort.
From the off the relentlessly bright instrumental evokes images of a late night drive down memory lane, where the fading auburn light of the sun battles with the gleam of overhead streetlamps. The guitar and backing vocals exchange rotations of a buoyant riff as the bass and drums lend a sense of propulsion that persists throughout. The sheer vibrancy of the track will shake the music world from the slumber and ruins of the post-Christmas musical landscape.
Frontman and songsmith Kevin Potter’s vocal delivery is earnest, and sits perfectly at the confluence of the sanguine soundtrack and poignant lyricism, serving the surface level indie rock scorcher whilst subtly reinforcing the theme of nostalgia-driven heartbreak.
It’s a flawless start from a band who are set to have an incredible year. With rumours of an album on the way in the summer, there is no doubt that Home Is Where The Heart Is will not be the last we hear from Paris Youth Foundation, and their sound is one set to adorn festival stages throughout 2020. The release of Home Is Where The Heart Is precedes a seven-date headline tour in February.
The band will perform at The New Adelphi Club in Hull on February 21st, Network 2 in Sheffield on February 22nd, and Leeds Oporto on February 25th.
