Sweden - Full Moon 82 - 06/14/03
Homy is fronted by Nina Natri who once sang in indie-pop heroes Fidget. Fidget were an artsy
and cool band who made new wavey pop. Homy is more of a playful experiment with electronica.
Natri's voice is an aquired taste, but she is very expressive and a little bit like a Swedish
The single "Bus Stop" is a coquettish reggae about longing for something better than what
you've got. "Good Gone Bad" is a duet with Jogi who sounds like he's Shaggy's brother. The songs
beats are both plastic and joyous. "Cannonball Queen" samples Serge Gainsbourg's "Bonnie and
Clyde" and leaves most of the singing to guest Chilly Dog. The french lyric alludes to the
original gangster couple in a funny way.
Elsewhere Homy sample Dolly Parton's "Jolene". They are electic, this group. "Enough is Enough"
uses Natri's girlish voice well and strays into synth-pop. The rockier "Baby Blue" is a thrilling
declaration of love.
Homy wont change your life, but they will but some fun into it just the same.
