After his melancholic, ethereal debut single ‘Younger Sun’, Homes returns with his second single, ‘loveable’. Filled with acoustic guitars, airy violins and gentle arrangements, Homes manages to again create an intimate, captivating atmosphere. ‘Give me love’, wails he in the opening of the track in his emotional falsetto, which is followed by a much stronger and fuller chorus, ending in a surprisingly epic outro. “Loveable” appears to be a lyrically important track to him, inspired by the suffering of a close person, as he explains it is about self-love and an attempt to tell everybody to love themselves.
As he explains, “I tried to write every word of this song as if I were to yell it intimately at a person, who I’ve seen suffer incredibly because they’re incapable of loving themselves. I always thought everybody is deserving of love. From those around them, but especially from themselves. People seem to think you need reasons to love yourself, I think you don’t. That’s the inspiration behind this song and the reason why it happened. I felt these are things that absolutely had to be said. So I chose to sing them. It has become incredibly important to me because of this.”
