Makeout debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The video features front man Kyle Dee in a darkly house lit only but incoming sunlight recalling memories of a woman from his past. That footage is complimented with footage of the band members performing their part to the song in separate locations. The video’s imagery serves to help illustrate the song’s message about a clearly broken relationship, which is a very familiar topic in the music world.
Said Dee of the song’s lyrical theme, ““Home” is about being completely drained from giving your all to a dead end relationship. It’s about wanting to build a life with somebody and being fed false promises of a picture-perfect future.”
Before joining Makeout as its front man, Dee made a name for himself as a contestant on American Idol, which at the time aired on Fox. He also wrote and performed with The Frantic. Dee is joined in Makeout by AJ Khah (ex-Sleep On It) on bass, and Makeout’s original members Tyler Young (lead guitar) and Scott Eckel (drums).
Matt Holmes and Travis Barker (Blink-182) produced the song. The duo also co-wrote the new song along with Makeout’s members and Jayden Seeley (With Confidence).
Holmes shared his thoughts on the creation of ‘Home’ in a recent interview.
“I had the boys fly to PA with the intention of getting some demos hashed out,” he said. “After digging in for a week or so, I think we all realized the tunes were turning into something special. We were fortunate enough to have Travis Barker and Matt Malpass work with Scott on the drums and programming, which definitely took the songs and production to another level. It was exciting watching the progression and getting to see the songs come into view. I’m really proud of the band, and I’m confident these songs will help serve as a proper launchpad for the next phase in MAKEOUT’s career.”
‘Home’ is available to stream and download here.
