With twelve new songs brimming with impossibly elegant hooks, poignant imagery, and enduring melodies that flirt with The Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel, A Different Kind of Here is infused with an unmistakable flair and cohesiveness that belies the fact that this uniquely 21st Century transatlantic songwriting team have never met. The hushed opening acoustic strains of 'Shadow Boy' quietly launch the record by showcasing the impactfulness of Homuth's understated voice, with simple strikes of the glockenspiel punctuating his melodic gifts. A string quartet escorts the 3/4-metered 'Ambivalent' an affectionate nod to Elliott Smith in which Homuth directs a captivating waltz that spells the frustrations of an indecisive object of one's affections.
