Slowly the sheen of sweat on foreheads is being replaced by beanies as we move to a much needed autumn. Denver-based Bluprint has the perfect transitionary treat with “Home”, the first single off their upcoming Lost Summer EP. “Home” is a pop-punk jam that hits hard from the beginning and never lets up. Per drummer Taylor, “The song is slammin’ from start to finish. We wanted to keep the energy up through the entire track to drive home the point of the song. It’s a song with strong emotions and we wanted to back that up with a killer instrumental.”
“Home tells a story that I feel like us three were living while writing and recording this whole record,” says bassist Tyler, “[it] is about chasing that feeling of fitting in, and some of the lengths people will go to feel some sort of comfort. It’s a realization that what we have been searching for may have been right in front of our face all along.” These all-too-relatable feelings permeate the energy of the track, pulsing through your body and mind.
The pulse is warm and cozy, just what we need under our scarves and gloves. The band was direct on how they landed on this sound, “We didn’t want to compromise on sound or chase the newest fad. Bringing in Sean O’Keefe to engineer and Mark Rose (Spitalfield) to produce the record we felt like we had the perfect dream team to do just that.” The production is subtle and elevated, nothing is out of place.
Vocalist and guitarist Josh remembers writing the lyrics for “Home”, “[I was] thinking about my life. It’s a reminder to myself that you do deserve the awesome things that come your way, and those things are worth fighting for. There is so much pressure nowadays that it creates a ton of doubt sometimes, especially chasing a wild dream of yours. After listening to the song it makes me feel like I am right on track.” We all need the reminder that chasing dreams is what life is about. And, even if you have to take it with you, this track will always lead you home.
Fun Facts about Bluprint – “Home”:
“We shot “Home” in a warehouse with no AC all day in the infamous Midwest humidity. Tyler had to pour water on his head all day just to stop from having an afro. At some point we just gave up trying to fight the sweat and embraced it. That’s where we got our beautiful glow in the video, midwest air so thick and moist you could move it.” – Bluprint
