Last year we stumbled upon the indie folk of London’s Cavetown, and we even caught a live set from his sold out tour. Now with the new year, the twenty year old has just signed a deal with Sire Records and he’s even re-recorded fan favorite “This Is Home” under a new title, “Home.”
The video itself is quite pretty with pop up book imagery. The song is higher in production and carries a heavier songwriting value. It not only showcases how far the artist has come since he was dropping songs on YouTube five years ago, but where he’s heading in the future. The upbeat touches of the track and the additional strings meet dual vocals to breathe new life into the track.
“Home” is available to stream on all platforms and the video can be viewed above or on YouTube and a limited press seven inch of the song can be purchased from Sire Records. Cavetown will be on tour beginning June 20 at The Abby in Orlando, FL until December 12 at Electric Ballroom in London, UK. A complete list of his tour dates can be found here.
