Never Left Home is the latest five song EP by Charlotte band heckdang, an emo and shoegaze-influenced indie rock. The album was released on March 17, 2019.
Each song focuses on different types of loss– loss of self-identity, friendships, relationships, and family and wrestle with the accompanying pain and stagnation.
“The album is emotional, angry, and raw. Album closer “Presbyterian” is a heart-wrenching piano and guitar punch to the gut that grapples with the devastating gravity of losing a parent, and the unfairness of being unable to find solace in religion. A muted, brilliant trumpet composes itself like the soft bouquet atop a funeral coffin.” – Shirley Griffith, CLTure
