Saint Etienne - Home Counties

Thematically it’s well done, but could do with just a few more bangers.

Thematically it’s well done, but could do with just a few more bangers.

Label: Heavenly Recordings
Released: 2nd June 2017
Rating: ★★★

27 years into their career Saint Etienne have proved that they’re masters of the pop game. The trio of Bob, Pete and Sarah are now onto their ninth album and ‘Home Counties’ offers another insight into the distinct world of Saint Etienne.

This time the concept is based on the area of England that gives the album its title and life living in these towns. Adept storytellers, the album is immaculately produced and features the kind of considered pop in which they specialise but lacks a certain sparkle.

Thematically it’s well done, but could do with just a few more bangers. Martyn Young
