Hull post punk/trash pop band Candid Faces have unleashed the video for their newest single “Coming Home“.
The track, produced at Hull University’s in-house studio by Tom Foston from Hull based band The Avenues, is a raw and vibrant slice of post-punk that lyrically touches on abusive parental relationships, themes of bigotry and dealing with such issues as a young person.
An incessant post-punk guitar hook starts things off before punchy drums kick in and lead to seemingly witty lyrics from the spirited vocals of Liz Shaw about an imaginary anti-social bloke – but these soon develop into an uneasy diatribe about one individual known by the band.
Liz explains: “It may seem like a fun jokey track that pokes fun at bigots and abusers but for our guitarist it was a healing process and a way for them to write about difficult experiences from their childhood, even if it was just an ambiguous four lines”.
