“Channelling the effortless psych-jam vibes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the song snakes slippery organ drones, reverberating voice-of-god whispers and a little guitar damage into its four-minute runtime. As you’re letting those sounds sink in your ears, relax your mind and let those morphing Lite-Brite tapestries elevate you to another plain of consciousness.” (EXCLAIM)

“Two amazing flushed out dreamy tracks that recall some of the best Brian Eno tracks with an apparent krautrock influence.”

Experience The Backhomes’ compelling debut ONLY FRIEND now out on limited edition vinylcassette. Also available on BandcampiTunes.

“If you’re only going to have one companion this summer you might as well make it good. Only Friend, the new full-length from Victoria’s The Backhomes, is a well-blended mixture of some of music’s greatest eras. It boasts a full psychedelic sound, killer guitar hooks and vocals that remind you of a more relaxed and experimental time in music.”

“The first aspect of this album by Montreal/Victoria duo is it’s intense (and awesome) drugginess. Narcotic (without being narcoleptic) and dreamy [...] A beauty, a gem and a rare treasure of an album.”
(THE BIG TAKEOVER)

“[Only Friend] engulfs you in a cathartic soundscape akin to stepping out of a dark winter cave into the first sunny days of pure blue sky. When the needle catches the groove, the heat waves begin.”
