New from the British Producer/Songwriter Phil Simmonds' "The Homesick EP”.
The first song from Phil Simmonds' "Homesick EP". "Homesick" is a song about missing home and being unable to goodbye to that place due to life circumstances. The track is slow-burning, open, and heartfelt. I love the conversational tone of this first track. The electronic elements are not overpowering at all and it is a beautiful and atmospheric piece.
