AUDIO: Homerow – “Learning How to Sleep in the 21st Century”
Folktronica project Homerow has kicked the new year off with a fresh album. While gentle as a feather, the emotional conviction here is heavy and powerful, detailing feelings of escaping reality and sanctuary in sleep. There’s tales of hypnosis, being broken up with your former self, reconciliation, and coming to terms with the ways things are. Cloudy weather and pale peeking sun blanket the symphonic atmosphere. It’s a captivating record that feels like a rumination of the hibernating nature that came with 2020.
