Homeshake Release Just Like My & UK Dates

by | Jan 14, 2019 | Sound/Vision

Homeshake, the project of Peter Sagar, shares the third single from Helium,  Just Like My and its accompanying video via i-D. The collaboration between Canadian director Oliver McGarvey and German artist Eric Winkler, both based in Berlin, mimics the airy, dream-like quality of Helium. “It’s tomorrow already and you’re home now and it’s daytime but the room just tilted and you’re still floating. The chair where you throw your dirty clothes is dancing and she’s rising and the trees outside your window fill the room. The video is a gentle tribute to the tender moment between awake and asleep and a plea to stay suspended in between a little longer.”

With Helium, Sagar puts down roots in aesthetic territory all his own. Landscape that he once viewed from a distance now forms the bedrock of his sound, and from here, he looks back out at the world as if through a light fog, composing songs that feel grounded and intimate, even as they explore a dispersed feeling of isolation. It’s a feeling that comes through not only in the gauziness of the production, but also in the vulnerability of the songs themselves. The record is stitched together by a series of instrumental interludes, synthesizer explorations whose haziness adds to the suspicion that this is all an uncanny dream.

Homeshake will take Helium on the road next month to Europe with headline shows in Brighton, Manchester and London’s Kentish Town Forum plus more.
