After a successful first year, homeplanetearth are back in their hometown to headline the O2 Academy (Upstairs) for the release of their EP, ‘homeplanetearth’.
Formed in the heart of rural Oxfordshire but with blood running from across the world, these five friends incorporate indie atmospheric synth sounds with melodic vocal harmonies from siblings Josephine and Thomas. Taking influence from a variety of different artists, homeplanetearth bring a dreamy, almost haunting new sound to some songs whilst contrasting it with bright happy tunes that you can dance the night away to.
Support from Roberto y Amigos, Polar Front and Little Red.
