Singles Lost in Time: Fruit Bats + Home Grown

Hello and welcome to Singles Lost in Time, where we dig through our library here at idobi (like monks sifting through historical texts) and we dust off some absolute bangers that never got their proper time in the sun.

Fruit Bats – “You’re Too Weird”

Fruit Bats shines some bright folk-rock at you through the overgrown canopy of societal woes in “You’re Too Weird”. The love song frames the singer’s romance as forbidden by those to whom he is closest. An important lesson in growth is on the horizon: do we leave our family behind or is our new bonnie love just “too weird?” The song’s vibe is perfect for that solo hike to a bucolic retreat you’ve been meaning to take.

Home Grown – “You’re Not Alone”

After signing to Drive-Thru Records, Home Grown’s SoCal pop-punk energy was ready for a national stage. In comparison to their surf-fun early offerings, “You’re Not Alone” is a mature call for empathy. The lyrics are direct but vague enough to encompass most difficulties you’re going through. “You’re Not Alone” is perfect for helping your mental state progress from solipsism to sonder. Outside of the lyrics, the music is an absolute must for any pop-punk playlist worth its weight in spiked leather bracelets.
