Ahead of their UK shows this month with The Used and Honey Revenge, Seattle four-piece The Home Team have unveiled a striking new “curveball” single entitled Loud.

The new ‘heavy pop’ banger hears the band dig into “territories that we’ve always wanted to explore as artists, specifically in accessing a lot of groove and style, rather than just excessive energy,” according to frontman Brian Butcher. “We wanted to take a pop approach to a song and rock-ify it, as opposed to the other way around – which we’ve found is a lot more common.”

Detailing the meaning of the track, Brian shares, “Beyond the obviously sexual subject matter of the song, Loud is about finding your confidence in giving 110 per cent to things that may be outside of your immediate comfort zone.”

The singer also thanks Skyler and Tyler Acord for helping The Home Team “realise our vision” on this one. “It’s definitely a bit of a curveball genre wise for us, which is why we wanted to release it before any other singles from our new album,” Brian continues. “There will be more familiar sounding songs as well, but we feel like Loud is such a statement for how we want to write music going forward, and we feel so strongly about it, that it would be a shame not to lead with it. Being adventurous with new music can be nerve wracking considering we don’t know if current fans will embrace it, but we hope that the people see our vision like we do and enjoy bumping the song.”
