  • Home Counties Releases New Song “You Break It, You Bought It”

  • London-based post-punk band Home Counties, consisting of Will Harrison (vocals/guitar/keys), Lois Kelly (vocals/keys), Conor Kearney (guitar/vocals), Dan Hearn (drums), Barn Peiser Pepin (synth/percussion/guitar/vocals) and Bill Griffin (bass/vocals), released the fourth single called “You Break It, You Bought It” from their upcoming debut album “Exactly As It Seems” on March 14, 2024.

    The song has already been a firm fan favorite and a staple of their live show since 2022.
    On the track, the band vocalist Lois Kelly offers sharp-witted quips on the state of renting in London (“lynching landlords in my dreams”).
    The song is accompanied by the Theo Polyzoides-directed animated visualiser.
    The track was written by Barn Peiser Pepin, Bill Griffin, Conor Kearney, Dan Hearn, Lois Kelly, and Will Harrison. Produced by Conor Kearney.
  • Will Harrison said of the song, “Having lived for years in shoddy flats, and having recently moved to the extortionately priced area of East London, we focused on our experience of renting. The song talks about landlords' refusal to improve conditions for their tenants and their eagerness to evict anyone threatening high profit margins. In response, it encourages petty actions as if revolutionary behaviour: lose your keys, make blu tack stains, refuse to use coasters, don't empty the toaster tray. In this way, it reflects the shift in lyricism on this album away from detached political commentary to using more mundane lived experiences of daily life, whilst still reflecting upon wider social issues.”

  • The debut album comprises a 10-track and is set to be released on May 3, 2024.
    Thematically, the album traverses the ups and downs of London life in your late twenties.
    Will Harrison said of the album, “The album is about moving to London and the experiences of that. It's an album about despair at your current financial prospects, feeling guilty about your role in gentrification, being overwhelmed by consumer choice, and disintegrating friendships.”
