      It could be an actual place or just a feeling, but were all searching for home in one way or another. In times like these, its a state of mind that remains harder and harder to come by as the world gets crazier and crazier. Welshly Arms most definitely attest, and that search drives the groups 2018 full-length debut, No Place Is Home [Republic Records]. Lacing daring alternative rock with gospel-size scope and bluesy heart, the Cleveland, OH six-pieceSam Getz [lead vocals, guitar], Brett Lindemann [keys], Jimmy Weaver [bass], Mikey Gould [drums], Bri Bryant [vocals], and Jon Bryant [vocals]cook up thirteen anthems that welcome listeners to chant along everywhere...Weve been traveling so much over the past few years, explains Sam. Its awesome to see so many new places and play to people everywhere, but you do feel a bit rootless. One month, the tour bus is our home. The next, were overseas living out of hotels. When we actually get back to our hometown, it doesnt feel like home, because weve gotten so used to being on the road. At the same time, its easy to feel lost and like you dont belong anywhere in the world. Thats the overall theme of the songs.Since 2013, Welshly Arms have canvased nearly every corner of the globe spurned along by a bevy of seismic and show-stopping songs. Their 2017 EP, Legendary, boasted the ubiquitous title track, Legendary. To date, it has earned gold certifications in Germany and Switzerland, cracked over 47 million Spotify streams in under two years, received 1.5 million Shazams, and soared to Top 15 at Alternative Radio. Meanwhile, the groups tracks have piped through campaigns for Miller, Hulu, NFL, Indian Motorcycles, and Becks Beer, while Hold On Im Coming roared over the trailer for Quentin Tarantinos Academy Award-winning The Hateful Eight. Additionally, they lit up the stage at Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and earned praise from Indie Shuffle, Baeble, Cleveland.com, and more.In the midst of this whirlwind, the musicians rented a 19th century house in Cleveland to record what would become No Place Is Home. They transformed the remote farm house into a de facto Welshly Arms headquarters and creative haven complete with separate rooms dedicated to keyboards, guitars, writing, listening to vinyl, and, of course, recording. This served as the site of the albums genesis.It just felt like a really creative and safe area to make new music, says Jimmy. We primarily record here, because its got everything we need. As years went by, weve accumulated so many different instruments and recording studio toys that had to often live in closets or storage units. Now, weve got everything in one place. You can write songs in any room. Theres no pressure. There are no time limits. It really brought a special energy to what we were doing.That energy courses through the first single Sanctuary. Propelled by powerful handclaps, sweeping organs, and robust guitars, the track stretches to cathedral-size heights highlighted by an angelic choir of voices as Sam assures, You are, you are safe with me.Lyrically, its all about getting through these hard times, connecting with someone, and making your safe place together, the vocalist goes on. Were taking that classic sound and making it our own. I just remember envisioning a whole group singing an inspiring lyric together, adds Jimmy. It could be in a bar or in an arena. Thats the vibe.Elsewhere, the album commences with rustling guitars and spaghetti western-esque whistling before snapping into a soulful strut. Down to the River adds a new face to revival-style energy with its swaggering punch. Then, theres Indestructible, which thrives on a funkified shuffle.That ones fun, smiles Sam. We wanted to give people something to move to. We kicked it off with a feeling. Its about a woman whos too strong for you. Youre having a hard time getting something going, because shes so indestructible.In the end, Welshly Arms make audiences feel right at home by elevating their sound to a bigger and bolder stratosphere.No Place Is Home really showcases our love for music, concludes Jimmy. We approach things in different ways and push ourselves. Weve moved up a grade as a band.There are so many different turns on this record, as far as the sounds and themes go, Sam leaves off. Legendary was the first step towards something bigger. This shows our progression as a whole.
