Homestate EP

The latest self-titled EP from Perth pop-punks Homestate is filled with classic pop-punk hooks, melancholic lyricism and angst.

Throughout the EP the group does an awesome job of layering upbeat joyful music with deep emo, emotive lyricism. The record’s major theme is heartbreak and the realisation that sometimes an individual can be “better off without you!”

Every track on this record is a prime example of how special the pop-punk genre can be. Three singles in particular though are worth sampling if you’re still sceptical. Those singles being; Sunny Day, Breathe, and Sick Sad World.
