Connie Danger – “I Wanna Go Home”
The delightfully melodic “I Wanna Go Home” is the second single from Connie Danger’s debut EP, The Ravages of Puberty (pt. 1). The aesthetic throughout is quite ethereal, with ’80s pop and rock evident with nostalgic guitar tones and anthemic vocals — like The Stone Roses meeting New Order. The “and I want to go home,” vocal hook is sweeping and wholly effective, the glistening guitars echoing alongside lyrics that reflect a youthful yearning, longing for days when the future was brighter and abundant with possibility (“I remember waking up every day and having something to fight for,”), and a parental guide wasn’t far away. “I Wanna Go Home” showcases some excellent pop songwriting with a consuming ’80s soundscape.
“I Wanna Go Home” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2019’ Spotify playlist.
