Nashville-Based Duo HOMES AT NIGHT Release New Single "Tell Emma"

(July 19, 2022) Today, Nashville based duo Homes at Night unveil their new single "Tell Emma," out everywhere via Hazel Street Records. Listen to the track HERE .

"'Tell Emma' is a song we wrote with our friend Louis Johnson, who also helped produce the track. The song came about from me being avoidant with a relationship that I knew needed to end but I just didn’t know how to cut it off. Production wise it’s definitely our ode to late 90s-early 2000s rock music and it’s become one of our favorites out of this batch of songs."

— Homes At Night

"Tell Emma" follows the release of the band's debut single "Bonnaroo," which dropped in June. Listen to "Bonnaroo" here.

Homes At Night — made up of songwriters Hank Compton and Aksel Coe — create alternative pop/rock anthems that blur the boundaries between genre and generation. It's a sound that's both nostalgic and modern, layered with organic instruments, synth-driven soundscapes, cinematic hooks, and a percussive pulse. On their debut EP, If You Were a Stranger (out later this year), the bandmates blend their indie sensibilities with story-driven songcraft, nodding to their Nashville roots while simultaneously pushing far beyond them.

Created during the global pandemic that brought both musicians' schedules to a halt, If You Were a Stranger began as a series of pressure-free recording sessions in Coe's basement. Free to indulge their musical whims, they pieced together an EP about dying relationships, new beginnings, and catharsis, bouncing between bombastic anthems and hushed, Elliot Smith-worthy indie pop. Featuring production from Grammy nominee JT Daly, If You Were a Stranger turns the uncertainty of the modern moment — a time when Hank and Aksel found themselves homebound, unable to make a living as touring musicians — into a new kind of stability. It's music for the heart and the head, created by two songwriters who bring their own palette to the grey area between genres.
