Home Counties “Redevelopment”

Bristol band, Home Counties just released their debut single, “Redevelopment.” With an infectious energy, the guitar rock track is reminiscent of bands like the Wombats or early Arctic Monkeys. Despite its raucous sound, the track is about gentrification of UK. “The first half of the song takes the view of 1960s redevelopers, with the second half addressing the tearing down of modernist buildings and replacing them with gentrified luxury flats,” explains the band “The song points out that these ideas of nostalgia, urban decay and progress come around in cycles. Fundamentally, it suggests that we should be as wary of arguments against redevelopment, as of redevelopment itself.”
