Late Homecoming are new to the scene. With their delectable sound that might just be familiar, they’re one of many new British bands that have come to attention in recent months while attempting to conquer the masses, but these guys are set to prove their worth with their recently released EP Youth In Revolt.

The four song record kicks off with ‘Wait For Me‘, and something that doesn’t necessarily belong in a rock song; a harmonica, which supports the incredible vocals from Tom Sadler who’s range could easily rival that of Josh Franceschi. The harmonica is soon gone, and replaced with acoustic guitar riffs – but it still sounds undoubtedly country. It’s a sweet track, but not exactly something you’d expect from a rock band. However, just as you might give up the pace begins to pick up and the listener is treated to a huge, harmonised chorus that is sure to win over a few hearts.

If you’re looking for something more gritty and in- your-face, ‘Terror Twin‘ might just be it. The angsty lyrics and driving melody are not unlike some of Britain’s best rock exports, Blitz Kids, Don Broco to name a few, showing that Late Homecoming are able to rock out just as well. ‘Hello World‘ is arguably even more impressive as it takes a turn in to softer side of things. The breakdown is anthem-worthy; its tune sounds like it has come straight out of California with guitar riffs like beachy waves.

No matter what you’re looking for, you can probably find it within these four songs. The variety offered is commendable, with each song sticking out on its own and appealing to a different target audience. For now, it seems to work, even if it means that Late Homecoming haven’t quite found a permanent direction to go in with their music style yet.
