“Hey, are you even paying attention to me right now?” asks a (quite possibly) pitch-shifted voice at the beginning of this fresh new Homeshake single, “Every Single Thing”, inciting the listener to snap out of whatever they’re doing and listen. But here’s the thing: the track is so smooth that one can’t possibly resist letting their mind wander a bit while it’s playing. Sure, it demands attention, but you’ll be mindlessly head-bobbing to the beat before you know it. And that’s not a bad thing; the song is just really infectious. Peter Sagar’s falsetto vocals are as pretty and melancholic as ever, the synths are pillowy and it’s under three minutes in length. Verdict? Yep, another good Homeshake song. Preorder his upcoming album “Fresh Air” here at Sinderlyn.
Peter Sagar is one cool dude. When operating under his Homeshake moniker, he is consistently releasing the coziest of rainy-day songs, making the most out of seedy drumbeats, catchy guitar lines and groovy bass. He’s been at it for a few years and lucky for us, a new album is on the way.
The first single, “Call Me Up”, is what Homeshake does best: a short, tight and surprisingly romantic track. Only this time, much like on his last release, he’s using synths instead of guitars. And it works!
His forthcoming album, “Fresh Air”, can be pre-ordered now from Sinderlyn.
Homeshake, we were not expecting this. I mean, brilliant mixtape last year, but this sly bit of slow funk, with a circuit-bendy outro, is a bit unexpected. So cool! Alright, so their new album In the Shower seems like it’ll be a very important release, and hopefully make this deserving bunch famous. Wonderful. It’s out September 26, watch out for it.
