THE BACKHOMES

BACKHOMES

ONLY FRIEND – STORYBOARD LABEL

If you’re only going to have one companion this summer you might as well make it good. Only Friend, the new full-length from Victoria’s The Backhomes, is a well-blended mixture of some of music’s greatest eras. It boasts a full psychedelic sound, killer guitar hooks and vocals that remind you of a more relaxed and experimental time in music. Given that this album has a very reminiscent throwback feeling behind it, there is no loss in the sense of it mimicking its own predecessors. Some highlight tracks for this record are “You Gotta Move,” “Tear It Up,” and “Coughing.” You can put this album on and drift away into your own subconscious and before you know it, as soon as it starts, it’s over. Its ambient sounds and psychedelic roots won’t be for everybody, but music fans can rejoice knowing that a revolution is coming and that we are getting back to our roots and further away from the garish, overproduced recordings we’ve come to accept. Kees Dekker and Aimee van Drimmelen have truly constructed a gem worth befriending.
