Nashville-based band, Homes At Night have released their new single, “Wasted On You“, taken from their just-announced debut EP, If You Were A Stranger. The new track marks the band’s fourth release, following debut single “Bonnaroo,” ode to late 90s-early 2000s rock music, “Tell Emma,” and their latest single, “Sugardreaming”. “Wasted On You” is a nostalgic indie-rock track carried by emotional vocals, grungy guitar and personal lyrics. Listen to it now below.
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.
