Early in May, the girlfriend and I drove out to the Pullman/Moscow area in Eastern Washington and Western Idaho. I love this drive, as you see so many distinct types of land, and the weather was near perfect. The reason for this tirade is that we must have listened to “The Honest Truth” by Typhoon about 30 times over that weekend trip.
It is, without a doubt, the best track on Typhoon’s new EP, A New Kind Of House. “Summer Home” is the second song on the EP, placed right after “The Honest Truth”. It’s one that I’ve grown to love since that trip. Of course, being that both A New Kind Of House and the band’s LP Hunger And Thirst arrived the day before we departed, many of these songs have grown on me.
But “Summer Home” is probably the one I’ve enjoyed the most. It has that great sense of orchestrated folk-pop that Typhoon knows how to create so well. Boasting 12 members, you’d hope they’d deliver something great and they surely do. Where “The Honest Truth” has that mystical, anthemic choral conclusion, “Summer Home” is an emotive tale of love and longing. And yeah, it includes plenty of harmony vocals as well.
Grab “Summer Home” below and pick up Typhoon’s EP and LP from Tender Loving Empire.
