Druv Kent – Back Home
Indian-born singer-songwriter Druv Kent returns with the stirring and anthemic brand-new single ‘Back Home’, and its accompanying video shot in India directed by TED fellow Puneet Rakheja.
After a period of international live performances and writing sessions this year, Druv Kent returns to the studio in the UK and delivers his new offering – a lyrically charged, ear-wormy single titled: ‘BACK HOME’.
It’s a flowing melody with evocative lyrics about identity and aspiration … about being who we truly are, and who we are capable of being … if we let go of our inhibitions. Druv describes “home” as our haven of comfort and prompts the question, what really is home? A physical place or a virtual space where you can be yourself … without judgment… where we can shed the external layers we each wear.
The track showcases Druv’s distinctive vocal style and ability to create memorable melodic hooks within an intimate, warm sonic scape that carves out a unique space in the current musical landscape and looks set to become another major milestone in a career that has already seen Druv achieve so much…
The hi-end video to the single, co-written by Druv and video Director, Puneet Rakheja, is set in Kolkata, India, the city where Druv was born and called home for many years. The video presents a journey of three characters taking a ride “home” in the city’s iconic yellow taxi; each of them de-layering over their journey to reveal their true selves on their way “Back Home”. A dramatic unmasking parallels the song’s rise in energy to explode at the end.
“The song lures you in, while the bassline gets your pulse racing … and, before you know it, the song has wrapped itself around you … back home.”
