Homeshake is the pseudonym and solo project of Edmonton-born, Montreal-based musician Peter Sagar. Following his 2014 debut In the Shower, Homeshake released sophomore effort Midnight Snack last fall with Sinderlyn.
Much of the record was written following Sagar’s dizzying time on the road as touring guitarist with Mac DeMarco, reflecting on the loneliness that 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 from 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.
