Home By Now

Album: So Long, See You Tomorrow (2014)
  • Vocalist Jack Steadman told NME: "We were in Germany the sixth night in a row or something and we were all feeling horrendously homesick. I wrote 'Home By Now' that night, which I think says it all."
  • This song was written with the help of an iPhone app. Steadman explained to NME: "There's a Native Instruments app that has all these royalty free samples on it. Lucy Rose and I would mess about on it for hours – I'd do a drumbeat and she'd do a baseline or something. We came up with some good stuff. The piano on 'Home By Now' is from that app, so thanks Native Instruments."
  • The song's music video was directed by Bombay Bicycle Club's keyboardist, Louis Bhose. The clip pays tribute to the Stanley Kubrick movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
