The wait for a new single from Homefront has been highly anticipated, being 10 months since their debut release of ‘Faultlines’. The question is, do Homefront give listeners the breathing space they need to stand out?
As for sticking to their respective genre, ‘Breathing Space’ has all the elements of a pop-punk track, fast sound, gang vocals and even a catchy chorus to match. The distinctive vocals from Peter Harvey give a distinctive tone to the track, while the remaining instrumental patterns are clearly set in place throughout the majority of the track. Despite a slight factor of repetitiveness through the tracks progression, the song itself definitely does grow the more you listen, with the catchy choruses taking the main forefront and verses acting as good secondary fillers.
Is the track super original? No and honestly, the pop-punk genre is one that is hard to break into. However, Homefront have presented us with a worthwhile track that will help them break out into their local Australian scene, if not further in the next few months/years.
