Dublin post-punk/indie rock band SCATTERED ASHES have premiered their new single “Homeowners“.
The song, recorded and mixed by Daniel Fox (Gilla Band) at Sonic Studios Dublin and mastered by Pete Maher, is out now via their own Fatal Vision Records. Get it here.
Following their previous releases, ‘Battles’, ‘Feral’, and ‘This New Will’, Homeowners is the band’s most vulnerable offering yet. The song deals with the concept of “right person, wrong time”. An unspoken romance between two people destined to ponder what could have been. Fate dealt a different hand; tied up in the trappings of adulthood and family life, they simply have too much to lose to ever act… ‘It doesn’t matter now we’re homeowners.’
Speaking about it, singer Rob says:
“Homeowners’ deals with the concept of ‘right person, wrong time.’ An unspoken romance between two people destined to ponder what could have been. Fate dealt a different hand, two individuals who are inextricably connected are now passing ships in the night. Tied up in the trappings of adulthood and family life they simply have too much to lose to ever act: ‘It doesn’t matter now we’re homeowners.’
The track is defined by a yearing vocal melody, ethereal guitar harmonics and bounding rhythm.
‘Our eyes meet unfolding, and time is slowing, we’re close to the feeling but lost in the meaning.’

SCATTERED ASHES are Robert Dalton (Vocals/Guitar), Gerry Sheil (Bass/Backing Vocals), Ben Downes (Guitar), and Cillian Sheil (Drums)
