Homeshake, the project of Peter Sagar, shares the third single ‘Just Like My’ from his forthcoming album Helium, out 15th February. Watch the accompanying video below!
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, 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, synthesiser explorations whose haziness adds to the suspicion that this is all an uncanny dream.
