Angst and affection go hand in hand on j solomon’s latest single “Home,” an indie-rock ripper about growing up, getting out, and wondering if maybe—just maybe—you should call your mom more (answer: probably). “I wrote ‘Home’ about how my relationship with my family changed as I grew up and moved away,” says solomon—a.k.a. Jesse Moldovsky—of the tune. “It’s a little sad and angsty, but I think the overarching theme is that while we may not see each other often or talk every day, we’ll still all be there for one another no matter what.”
The final product is a bittersweet banger about leaving one’s hometown to chase your big-city dreams. It’s wholesome, it slaps, and it’ll appear on j solomon’s forthcoming Sleeping in the Garden EP, along with previous singles “Mona Lisa” and “Gossamer.” “It’s my biggest project to date and has been my main musical focus for the past two years,” says Moldovsky of the EP. “It’s a collection of songs that soundtracked my life as I went through a transitive period—moving out, college, pandemic, etc. To me, it feels like a perfect encapsulation of who I am as an artist, and I am so proud to finally be able to share it in full.”
