SheBeat – “Home”


A hazy psych-folk mystique and twangy rock dreaminess infuse on “Home,” a consuming new single from SheBeat, an artist originally from Liverpool, UK. The track features a captivating, ghostly backing vocal performance from Edinburgh-based singer/songwriter Sarah Gallagher. Themes of belonging combine with grippingly melodic haunts for an enveloping track from SheBeat and Gallagher.

Debonair vocal layering lends a nostalgic psych-folk mystique, with the layers culminating with spine-tingling appeal within the title-referencing refrain. Solemn acoustics and steady percussive pit-pattering accompany the solemn, sporadic electric guitars — invoking a sort of bluesy, darker rock introspection in the verses prior to the ascending vocal chills in the “home,” segment. The “wanna be home with you,” yearning is especially gripping; the backing vocal flourishes and twangy guitar reflections make for a riveting composure. “Home” is a thorough, confident success from SheBeat.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
