Homeshake gets groovy on new song “Khmlwugh” — listen

A preview of the former Mac DeMarco guitarist's upcoming third album

    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.
