Kaiser Chiefs - “Coming Home (Live on Balcony TV)” (video) (Premiere)

[17 July 2014]

By Brice Ezell

During their recent tour of the US, the British pop/rock sensations Kaiser Chiefs took to a rooftop in Brooklyn to perform a tune from their latest record. The song, the wistful “Coming Home”, benefits from a largely acoustic arrangement; though the pulsating bass of the original version is missed, the acoustic guitars bring a heightened emotionality to this already solid ballad.

The video also features a brief Q and A with the band at the end, with talk of accidentally swallowing bugs and swapping stories of how the band members met.

“Coming Home” can be found on Kaiser Chiefs’ latest LP, Education, Education, Education & War, out now via ATO in the US and Fiction in the UK.
