Martin Garrix – Home (feat. Bonn)

The Dutch Maestro Martin Garrix who is still yet to fully recover from his Leg Injury has dropped a new track with Bonn titled ‘Home’. Having an incomparable ability for adhering to his foundations at the same time figuring out how to capture the mainstream audience, ‘Home’ does well enough to satisfy the thirst of both his mainstream and EDM fanbase.

Martin Garrix’s affair with a variety of genres just keeps on going and well this is probably the only affair that all the counterparts won’t mind. ‘Home’ starts off with a melodic guitar piece which beautifully set up the mood for the rest of the track. Bonn’s vocals just feel like a silver lining to the underlying instrumental. Gradually the track delves into the climax where the use of syncopated lead synths builds up the energy for the drop. The drop is kind of a different one but has the unique Martin Garrix flare to it. The bass drum isn’t something you would experience in his old songs and packs an acoustic feel with it and so goes with the bassline which seems to be played by a bass guitar. Bonn’s vocals return to the focus with the sublime strings lying underneath in the breakdown. Things start warming up with all the elements slowly coming back in and contributing to the momentum.

Home completes the trilogy of tracks split between Martin Garrix and Bonn. All the three tracks have so much in common between them and so is reflected by their names. High On Life, No Sleep & Home clearly demonstrate Martin’s feelings and how his life has been shaping up in recent times. The most recent one, Home seems to describe his feelings about him wanting to get back to his home sitting aside his tiring touring schedule.

Lyrics (courtesy – Genius.com) :

[Verse 1]
Oh, I was hiding from the pain
But now I’m tired of running
Felt like the gods forgot my name

[Pre-Chorus]
In my head, I didn’t know what I was looking for
We got so close to something beautiful
And now I’m never gonna let you go, you go, you go

[Chorus]
Home, take me home
Back to my roots, yeah, it’s been so long
Hey, I found a way
Back to the streets where they know my name
You know I’ve been all around, all around
But you were always on my mind, on my mind
Home, take me home
Back to my roots, yeah, it’s been so long, yeah

[Pre-Drop]
Home, take me home
Back to my roots, yeah, it’s been so long, yeah

[Drop]

[Verse 2]
Oh, I was falling from my high
And I came down to nothing
Feels like the gods left me behind

[Pre-Chorus]
In my head, I didn’t know what I was looking for
We got so close to something beautiful
And now I’m never gonna let you go, you go, you go

[Chorus]
Home, take me home
Back to my roots, yeah, it’s been so long
Hey, I found a way
Back to the streets where they know my name
You know I’ve been all around, all around
But you were always on my mind, on my mind
Home, take me home
Back to my roots, yeah, it’s been so long, yeah

[Bridge]
Been so long, been so long
Been so long, long, long
Been so long, been so long
Been so long, long, long

[Pre-Drop]
Home, take me home
Back to my roots, yeah, it’s been so long, yeah

[Drop]
