This is the best pop-hymn I've heard lately. "The Homesicks", the new quintet from Tel Aviv, although rides the retro-wagon of the 80's, it's hard not to like their new single "Michelle". - Raviv Golan - Yediot Ahronot


Is it possible to have a contagious Israeli new-wave hit single? Apparently so...

(...
3rd place - The Hmesicks: Everybody wants a piece of me
4th place - Sean Lenon: Friendly fire
5th place - Cold War Kids: Hng me up to dry
...) - Yediot Ahronot weekly single chart


"The Homesicks" presents great written and produced songs, full of energy and guts. a clean-smooth sound by the most impressive standards - all in the first EP to this new Israeli band. - Boaz Cohen - Ma'ariv


This could be the new european thrill - if we were only in london...
...It was a show full of great vibes and magic: The Homesicks have unified, solidified and ass-kicking sound as The Killers, yet doleful as BlondeRedhead...
...The place was packed while on stage played The Homesicks. with the front-persons Haim Cohen and Billy Levy (both plays guitar and vocals), who create a strong mixture of voices, sounds and a sarcastic remarks, for our enjoyment. Levy's uniqe voice (a combination of PJ Harvey and Karen O) and Cohen's powerful song-presentation, are backed by Gal Hermoni (synth), Omri Greenfield (bass) and Yoav Lahav (drums), who completes the picture... - Noa Lavi - Tel Aviv magazine

Bio

The Homesicks is a five-piece Post-Punk group, They sound like a mixture of New-York No-Wave, 'Madchester' second Summer-Of-Love and early eighties New-Romantics.

The members of the band hold a double-bind musical viewpoint at the contemporary Neo-Post-Punk discourse as well as a non-nostalgic gaze at eighties-pop-music.

As 'Humanities' and 'Art' scholars, their music follows a Neo-Marxist political agenda and Continental Thought, which are manifested in their musical style and lyrics as well as in their D.I.Y Modes of Production.

'The Homesicks' recently released its highly-acclaimed debut album: "Modes of Production".
In the last three years the band has been active in the local Tel Aviv alternative music scene and they are ready to hit the road.
