Rising indie four-piece The K’s try to piece together their weekend escapades on latest single ‘No Place Like Home’ – a frantic, and riotous pop/rock bop co-written by the band themselves, and produced by Gareth Nuttall (The Lottery Winners, Frank Turner, Dirty Blonde).
Serving as the quartets last release ahead of their debut album ‘I Wonder If The World Knows’ on March 22nd 2024, the energetic tracks arrives hot on the heels of previous single ‘Heart On My Sleeve’.
Commenting on the personal story that inspired them to write the song, the lads say: “‘No Place Like Home’ is a story of the weekly occurrence of anxiety and panic attacks every Sunday. Starting with an initial feeling of confusion as to why your body feels like it’s fighting to survive closely followed by the panic that sets in as you retrace your steps through the night before. The dreaded ‘beer fear’ and financial hardship that makes you promise you’ll never do it again – only to do the exact same the weekend after. The song constantly battles to try and find balance between the temporary tranquillity that comes with being intoxicated and the harsh reality of the longer term effects it has on both physical and mental health.”
The tracks accompanying music video, by Geoff Owens, features a teenager putting on a cassette of the band, dancing around the streets and using the music as a form of escapism.
Speaking of the video – which also includes scenes of the group performing the song – band member Ryan Breslin says: “We wanted to try capturing the energy of the track live as well as through the reaction of people listening to it and the young lad bouncing round his town to his favourite tune has done this perfectly.”
With director Geoff adding: “This concept presents an exciting visual opportunity, allowing us to showcase the band’s mastery while authentically conveying their live essence, both through an electrifying performance and visceral experience for the listener.”
