Their new EP lands next month.

With their new EP ‘In A Middle English Town’ out on 11th February via Alcopop! Records, Home Counties have dropped new track ‘Village Spirit’.

“The song is based on a book by historian Alain Corbin, Village of Cannibals, which is about the murder of a nobleman in late nineteenth century France” singer Will Harrison notes. “Based on rumours, the whole village was whipped up into a frenzy and ended up brutally torturing and murdering the nobleman. The lyrics focus on the contrast between positivity of place-based collectivism, and the meaning it can bring, and the often tragic consequences of it. It’s a really messed up story, and contrasts what is probably one of our most gentle and melodic songs.”
