Upstate New Yorkers Home Lives have joined the Monday Records family and share their debut single Cool Waves, Young Blood which premiered on Happy this morning!
The project is the brainchild of songwriter and guitarist Mike Horgan and began out of his desire to make hooky tunes about brazenly personal topics like childhood, love, post-college Millennial life and the human condition. They’re also really good at throwing in the occasional pop culture reference in here and there.
The album was recorded with Chris Daly at Salvation Recording Co. in New Paltz, NY. Daly has recently recorded artists such as Porches., Frankie Cosmos, QUARTERBACKS, Diet Cig and PWR BTTM. The album was mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music. Ruhe has recently mastered albums by artists such as Titus Andronicus, Built to Spill, and Swans. Noah Bowman, drummer of Diet Cig, plays drums on the entire Home Lives EP.
Longtime collaborator Brittany Cohen is the second half of the group and adds vocals and keyboards to the mix. Since their conception they’ve experimented with a range of styles which they inject into their indie rock like 50’s doo-wop, 60’s pop rock and garage rock, 80’s post-punk and synthpop, and some 90’s shoegaze and jangle pop.
Monday Records is stoked to have these guys on board and is excited to finally share them with you. You can visit their Facebook here.
