Hometime Gives Us Strength To Walk Away On “Burn The Photograph”

The Dublin-based artist recognizes that sometimes cutting loose is best, even if it’s hard. In the bustling, lively realm of pop music, Dublin’s very own Tony Kavanagh, aka Hometime, has established himself as a rare artistic talent.

Having once attempted a period of retirement, Kavanagh realized his love for music was too strong, returning to the scene to express himself through his art. The Hometime project has been a long time in the making. Still, driven by Kavanagh’s artistic skill and genuine love for music, it promises to be an excellent and captivating release.

Breaking free from the shackles of conventional music industry norms, Kavanagh embarked on a deeply personal journey fueled solely by his passion and artistic expression. As a proudly queer artist, he’s garnered immense support from the LGBTQ community worldwide, even charting in the top 3 of Canada’s LGBTQ2+ chart, the Q32. However, Kavanagh’s ability to transparently address and portray the complexities of real emotion has enabled him to transcend boundaries, ensuring there’s a little something for everyone.

“Burn The Photograph” is Kavanagh’s latest single under the Hometime Project and is a riveting release that portrays an explosive argument with a couple on the brink of collapse. Although the song may initially feel darker than some of Hometime’s previous releases, Kavanagh says there’s a positive message at the heart of it.

Kavanagh says, “We can get self-destructive in anger – especially at the end of a relationship – and the song is that moment where the only sane next step is leaving. Like running from a burning building, in a way.” Supported by a full, lush soundscape created by electronica-inspired instrumentals, lyrics like “Go shred the letter / Burn the photograph / All we thought was whole / Was half” detail the sweet release that comes with having the strength to let go.

Hometime’s “Burn The Photograph” manages to distinguish between being dark and inspired. Sometimes we all need the strength to do what’s best for us. Whenever you’re ready, tap in and stream Hometime’s “Burn The Photograph,” available now on all major streaming platforms.
