New Homecomings: “Hurts”

Kyoto’s Homecomings have a new release out later this month, and now they’ve shared the video for the title track. “Hurts” is a mid-tempo stroll of a song, embracing a slow-burn approach rather than the more speedy songs that first caught attention on their earliest releases. It might not zip out the gate, but it definitely gets the drama out, adding more guitars and sweet backing vocals as “Hurts” reaches it emotional-letting of a chorus. It’s a reminder that, while there quickness charmed early on, Homecomings ability to write a solid song at any speed has made them stand out from the indie-pop pack. Well, that and those fantastic backing harmonies. Watch the video above.
