Homeshake details new album ‘Fresh Air’ out 3 February on Sinderlyn
Debuts first single ‘Call Me Up’
North American tour kicks off this month
Homeshake (the musical project of Peter Sagar) cracks a window open with his third album Fresh Air, out 3 February via Sinderlyn. FADER debuted lead single ‘Call Me Up’ describing that the “track pushes his bedroom R&B in a slightly funkier direction…a strong sense of hospitality is the track’s most defining characteristic.” Homeshake explains “it’s a song about a spiritual connection strong enough to allow you to empathise with your partner from a great distance.”
Born in the bleak isolation of the secluded prairie city of Edmonton, Canada, Peter Sagar worked with friends in a number of local bands before picking up and moving to Montreal in 2011 to begin recording under the Homeshake moniker. Following two self-released cassettes (The Homeshake Tapes and Dynamic Meditation) and two acclaimed full lengths (In The Shower and Midnight Snack), Sagar gives us ‘Fresh Air’.
Fresh Air continues Sagar’s exploration of dreamy, down-tempo bedroom R&B and draws inspiration from such disparate artists like Sade, The Band, Broadcast, Prince, and Angelo Badalamenti. As the title ‘Fresh Air’ suggests, Sagar’s songs were created to clear his listeners’ minds of negativity. Full of smokey, laid back love songs and airy productions, Sagar’s decidedly stoned sound is a breath of fresh air.
