WATCH: Home Travel ‘My Shadow’ (Official Video)
HOME TRAVEL are a hypnotising electronic duo from Melbourne, Australia and have just released their first video clip for the title track from their debut EP ‘My Shadow’. Them Xanax’d feels.
The sounds of HOME TRAVEL sit somewhere between hazy dub-tinged reggae and smokey new wave vibrations, a sound that is widely unrepresented in the Australian scene.
The clip shows images of grimy and dark urban locales – bodega-esque convenience store aisles, and dank boxing clubs – it seems a lot like a strange mixture between Harlem and Bangkok, but in reality it’s showing a dreamlike underbelly of inner city Melbourne, right in our backyard.
It’s refreshing to see (and hear) that there are indeed experimental groups out there in Australia making sounds right now that are bold enough to go against the current tides of the positive ‘summertime’ vibe music.
If you dig the occult vibes of HOME TRAVEL you can grab their debut EP ‘My Shadow’ from iTunes.
