Home Is Where The Heart Is is the first release from the Liverpool five-piece, Paris Youth Foundation, since signing to Modern Sky UK. Recorded at the legendary Parr Street Studios and produced by Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Courteeners, Vistas), Home Is Where The Heart Is is a track brimmed with sonic optimism. Paris Youth Foundation spoke with The Fountain about this new track, as well as their plans for the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what reception have you had thus far?
The reception’s been amazing. We’re really lucky to get so much support from BBC radio. Steve Lamacq played it on his show three times in the first week and Huw Stephens playing it at Radio 1 is such a big deal for us. Getting played on Radio 1 is still always a pinch yourself moment. We’ve also had great spotify support, your song being put on a playlist like the indie list which has hundreds of thousands of followers alongside some of your favourite bands is something we’re very grateful for.
TF: How would you sum up Home Is Where the Heart Is in one sentence?
It is a song about pretending you’re eighteen again, just for the night.
TF: Paris Youth Foundation is an unusual name for a Liverpool-based band, what inspired this one?
I was in Paris when I was younger and I seen it graffitied on a Metro station. To this day have I have no idea what it is.
TF: Will you be performing the track live anytime soon, it would be great to hear it in that format?
We will be playing it on our headline tour in a few weeks. This is our first headline tour so were raring to go. But yes, the new single will definitely be in the setlist.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, some more single releases, an EP?
Last year we signed our record deal so we wrote and recorded our album the end of last year. We’re going to release a few more singles to take us up to summer then hopefully drop the album sometime around then. The plan is to then get on the road as much as we can and show it to any many people as possible.
