An exhilarating rocker that gets right to the point, “Everybody Has to Go Home” is a charismatic stirrer from Garden Station. Comprising four childhood friends who hail from the Philadelphia suburbs, Garden Station infuse clamoring guitar tones, shout-y vocal invigoration, and doses of harmonica within the contagious mix. The effort represents the first single from their full-length debut. Themes of searching for personal identity — “everybody has to go,” signaling an anxiety to do something, anything in one’s twenties — compel alongside the fun, no-frills rock vibe presented throughout.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.
