With their sharp blend of synth breaks, acutely observed lyrics and immediately infectious hooks, Homework have been steadily gaining momentum since the release of their acclaimed debut offering Sleepless Nights in 2009.
Spending the bulk of 2010 developing their sound, they re-emerged as a bolder, more coherent voice in early 2011. A hectic summer schedule saw the four-piece deliver standout performances across a range of key Scottish festivals including Wickerman, Belladrum ,goNORTH, The Edge Festival and Insider. They closed the year with the release of the mini-album All That Glitters to a strong response from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Scotland, as well as being invited to play at the Belgian industry showcase event Glimps.
