Irish-born London based folk rock singer-songwriter BarryLocke has a lot of music in him. Looking to share it with the world, he has spent the last few years quietly working with Carl Falck of Rooftop Records on his debut album O N E, that’s set to be an autobiographical concept album that explores relatable themes of life experience, all told through the crisp tones of his hometown.
Recent single I Knew The Boy That Cried Wolf impressed with it’s acoustic guitar driven upbeat charm, and latest offering Home Is Not Your Enemy looks to up the energy. A more expansive instrumentation perfectly compliments the powerhouse of a chorus, memorable melodies and rich background vocals complete the song while Locke dips into his folk influence even further.
On the track itself, Barry states “’Home Is Not Your Enemy’ is about ‘The Journey’. It’s a song about retracing the steps you have taken along the paths you have chosen and being able to look back on it with a full heart. It’s about not being afraid to leave, not being afraid to fail and ultimately, not being afraid to return to the place you call home because your heart is still there.”
