Peter Sagar, former guitarist for Mac DeMarco, plays under the alter ego Homeshake. While his previous band found success on the back of jangly lo-fi (or jizz jazz, as DeMarco calls it), Sagar’s steadily been setting up shop in the realm of low-key, bedroom R&B. We detected flavors of this on his sophomore album, 2015’s Midnight Snack; he’s now fine-tuning the sound on the follow-up, Fresh Air.
Case in point: the LP’s latest single “Khmlwugh”, which we’re premiering today. Sagar here taps into both Prince’s impeccable falsetto and Sade’s penchant for late-night temptations. Deep grooves abound, as the Edmonton musician talks of “kissing, hugging, making loving, and gettin’ high,” his voice intimate as though every word uttered is a sensual secret.
Stream it down below.
Fresh Air arrives on February 3rd via Sinderlyn; for more, check out lead single “Call Me Up”. Pre-orders for the album can be found here.
