“The Backhomes, with their futuristic sounds, are alerting us to the fact that the future is unknown, something that we innately fear. Whether it will turn out to be as ghastly as our worst nightmares or as heavenly as our sweetest dreams may come down to the subtle difference in how we perceive it.” (RIDE THE TEMPO)

“The Backhomes’ Tidalwave is a psych-pop masterpiece”

EP Talk b/w Backwards Sunshine now available on Bandcamp.

“A radiant, dew-dappled, tape deck chef d’œuvre.” (DOTS & DASHES)

“Two amazing flushed out dreamy tracks that recall some of the best Brian Eno tracks with an apparent krautrock influence.” (IT’S PSYCHEDELIC BABY)

“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.” (EXCLAIM)

Experience The Backhomes’ compelling debut ONLY FRIEND now out on limited edition vinyl (SOLD OUT) & cassette. Also available on Bandcamp.

“Sun-blasted, reverb-heavy psych-pop.” (NOISEY)

“Only Friend […] 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.” (BEATROUTE)

“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.”
