Romare | Home (2P)
Romare returns with his third studio album via Ninja Tune, Home. The album follows his recent 12” single Gone / Danger in 2019 (Gone opens the album). The album represents his most intentional and direct nod to the dancefloor to date while retaining all of the signature melodic charm and sonic textures synonymous with his music.
Shifting from themes of love and romance on Love Songs: Part Two, Home explores spirituality, identity and belonging. It see’s Fairhurst pull from the more unusual records in his collection for inspiration, delving into american gospel and traditional irish folk through to country, religious hymns and classical (with a special nod to composers Thomas Tallis and Vaugn Williams). During the past few years Fairhurst has moved away from purely sample based music, developing his use of instruments in his music and experimenting with different tools, both old and new. These tools include a vintage organ he found in a local charity shop, his dad's old 12-string guitar, re-assembling his childhood drum kit from the 90’s and a tape player which allowed him to start sampling from cassette tape.
