HOMESHAKE SHARES "GIVE IT TO ME" VIDEO FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM MIDNIGHT SNACK
Homeshake, the pseudonym and solo project of Edmonton-born, Montreal-based musician Peter Sagar, shares his new video "Give it To Me" via Interview Magazine. The languid video shot in one day at Coney Island was directed by Jim Larson and features a woozy roller-coaster ride couched in rolling shots of beach side revelry.
This video is the second cut from Homeshake’s recently announced sophomore effort Midnight Snack due out September 2015 via Sinderlyn (pre-order here) the follow-up to his 2014 debut In the Shower. You can also stream the record’s lead single"Heat" as Sagar’s first new offering from the record which premiered last month.
‘Give It To Me’
Midnight Snack was recorded this past winter with Jackson MacIntosh at the Drones Club in Montreal. Musically this time around Sagar trades in his guitar for synthesizers and a drum machine, developing vocal arrangements from loops he created for solo set. He pulled influence from house pioneers like Chip E and Mr. Fingers as well as Japanese pop starlets like Chiemi Manabe, slowing down the tempo with his own homemade drowsiness. The resulting collection is an eclectic tangle of personal anecdotes steeped in an everlasting reverence of D’Angelo and R Kelly.
Much of the record was written following Sagar’s dizzying time on the road as touring guitarist with Mac DeMarco, reflecting on the loneliness the plagued him towards the end of his run and the longing for life back home in Montreal. Sagar left the band to focus on his own music and to rebuild the infrastructure of his life. While many of the new tracks meander through anxiety and melancholy it is also a witness to a return to safety.
There is a reoccurring theme for Sagar of pulling inward throughout the record. He casts a wide net and fills it with a multitude of musical influences and international tour dates then slows it down a few tempos and builds something humble around it. Throughout the record he peppers in a deep appreciation for the meals prepared by his girlfriend Salina and the simple pleasure of a midnight snack before curling up in bed next to the person you love.
