Our House Hunter’s Anthem

Depreston – Courtney Barnett

Every 80’s movie always boasted a powerful theme song to help narrate the story, with an even more epically cheesy montage to compliment it. Whether we know it or not, some songs come into your life at just the right moment and effortlessly recount something you’ve experienced. Whether it’s the summer night you kissed that special someone or the road trip that changed your life. For the good, the bad and the downright embarrassing, somehow music has a way of bookmarking moments in time.

Looking for, and ultimately buying a house is inevitably going to be a memorable part of your life, and the process of doing so can be bittersweet. There’s one song that we’ve found to be the epitome of house hunting and it became our unknowing anthem.

Courtney Barnett’s “Depreston” practically spells out every feeling experienced through the journey of searching for a home from a first time buyer’s point of view, and it’s f*cking beautiful.
