“Though only a little over three minutes long, it’s sprawling in ambition, a
gorgeous type of cut that could swallow you whole if you just let it.”

Consequence Of Sound on "Home Is A Feeling"

"opens with a barrage of downbeats before opening into an swift stream of
intertwining guitars, rumbling drums and hazy vocals.
"
Rolling Stone on "Charm Assault"

"It’s a remarkably concise and well-constructed rock song, one with a
slightly off-kilter beat and a serious sense of melodic warmth to it.
"
Stereogum on "Charm Assault"
24 hours after revealing "Charm Assault", their first new music in twenty years, Ride have today unveiled yet another new track, the mesmerising "Home Is A Feeling". Produced by legendary DJ, producer and remixer Erol Alkan, "Home Is A Feeling" is a tantalising second taster of their forthcoming album, out mid-year on Wichita Recordings via [PIAS] / Inertia Music hinting at the breadth and ambition of the new material.
 
LISTEN TO "HOME IS A FEELING" HERE
Mark Gardener says: “‘Home Is A Feeling’ to me is like a slow, wide-screen, sonically, layered, slowed motion warm wash. Like returning home as dawn rises totally exhausted and spangled after a long... long... big, great night out.

Andy Bell says: “Out of all the new songs ‘Home Is A Feeling’ comes closest to the early Ride sound. We felt comfortable going vintage on this tune because the album we are making has a pretty broad sonic scope. It’s a short and sweet, melodic tune, with stacked harmonies, reverbed-out guitars, slowed down drums, and a huge distorted bass sound. Erol put his sage-scented electronic wizards hat on to sample up some of our harmonies and make them into a synthesiser preset, which we ended up using on this and some of the other tunes too. We wanted this song to sound jet lagged, so everything on it was recorded with varispeed, either faster or slower than real time. It’s like 1966 Beatles meets 1988 MBV… in other words, Ride.

The album, scheduled for release this summer, sees the band reunited with Wichita Recordings co-founders Mark Bowen and Dick Green, who worked with Ride during the band’s early years on Creation Records. It also brings the band back together with mixer Alan Moulder (Arctic Monkeys, Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers) who mixed their seminal 1990 album Nowhere and produced its follow up Going Blank Again.

The revitalised four piece - comprising of Bell, Gardener, Laurence Colbert, and Steve Queralt - reformed and returned to the live scene in 2014, selling out headline tours around the world to a roar of critical acclaim, as well as show stopping turns at festivals including Coachella, Primavera and Field Day.
