After returning to New Zealand after his European tour in 2015, Luke Thompson decided to take a break from life on the road. A year later, during a seemingly innocent guitar repair, Thompson's passion for music blossomed again.
‘Hosts’ emerged out of his nighttime work. It was to be his quiet re-entry into music. With songs that are stripped bare and self-sufficient, they are the sound of a songwriter with only himself for company in limbo between old and new. In many ways it’s the songwriter at his most honest and unguarded in every way, it’s the sound of a hopeless romantic, marching into the unknown country at the pace of his own drum.
