Stream ‘Home Song’

Bringing swirling alt-pop soundscapes to life with heartfelt lyricism delivered using beautiful emotional clarity, Perth-based band Joan & The Giants are unveiling their newest single ‘Home Song’ on July 8.

Their second single of the year behind enamouring release ‘Slow Motion’Joan & The Giants are continuing to impress with their stirring brand of alternative pop that arrives soaked in glistening melodies and raw emotional epiphanies.

With partners and longtime collaborators, Grace Newton-Wordsworth and Aaron Birch at the helm, Joan & The Giant’s music is often inspired by personal experiences shared within a loving relationship, which is the key focus of their new single ‘Home Song’.

Written as love letter to Aaron during an incredibly difficult period of loss, ‘Home Song’ swoons with a delicate warmth as gentle acoustic guitar melodies combine with heartbeat percussion and sweet, soulful vocals. Then, the chorus opens up in a celebration of love with big drums and intricate synth notes, melding folksy guitar strumming with an epic vocal release.

Radiating with an overwhelming feeling of love, ‘Home Song’ puts everything into perspective, acting as a reminder not to take anything for granted, as Grace reflects:

“‘Home Song’ was written on a Sunday in June 202I. Aaron and I had a pointless fight over nothing (probably the dishes), then he saw all of these missed calls on his phone and found out his grandma was seriously ill and he needed to fly to Broome immediately to say goodbye.”

“When he flew away, it put everything into perspective and I just wanted to take the pain from his chest and hold it for a while. It taught me to not take anything for granted, and to hold the people you love close… So this song is for Aaron, my home.”  

Since their debut, Joan & The Giants have been nominated in three separate categories of the prestigious International Songwriting Competition 2021 alongside Missy Higgins, Eskimo Joe and more, headlined the Shinju Matsuri Festival, supported Odette on the WA leg of her 2019 ‘Lotus Eaters’ tour and performed at Nannup Music Festival 2021. The band has seen support from Triple J, Scenestr, AU Review, AAA Backstage, Aus Music Scene and heap of community radio.

Feel at home with Joan & The Giants’ new single ‘Home Song’, out on July 8.
