When I listen to Homeshake, I imagine his songs being introduced by that jazzy, low and alluring late night radio show host’s voice as you prepare yourself for a dreamy experience: “Now I’m going to hit you with that smokey bedroom R&B tunes that are perfect for you and that special someone… On tonight’s radio show: Late Night Love Songs with Homeshake”
Montreal-based band, Homeshake, is singer-songwriter Peter Sagan and friends. Earlier this year, they released the album Fresh Air, which flourishes in captivating vocals, clean guitar riffs, 70s funk vibes, airy productions & smokey, laid back love songs. I find something new about the album each time I listen because of all the layers and textures he creates with the different sounds. The lo-fi sounds of the instruments coincide perfectly with the soulful, R&B beats heard throughout the entire album. One of my favorite things about this album are the transitions from each song- Peter skillfully and successfully changes the mood and tempo in a smooth way that keeps you listening to the album from start to finish.
Don’t miss Homeshake live this month- they will impress all with Peter’s captivating voice and hip hop/R&B/soulful beats complemented by a sensual yet indie pop ambience.
