Take a listen to the track here.
Former Mac Demarco guitarist Peter Sagar makes sleazy, lofi bedroom R&B for the boudoir as Homeshake. “Khmlwugh” is the latest single from his upcoming record, Fresh Air. The track’s title can be taken as a tribute to Prince’s fondness for acronym’d song names. But instead of extolling the virtues of “Dance, Music, Sex, Romance,” Sagar’s busting out his taut falsetto to celebrate “kissin’, hugging, making love, waking’ up and getting’ high.” It’s a downtempo affair, with a de-tuned, ringing synth pad and a nimble, slick bassline that evoke a narcotic eroticism.
Check out the track below. Fresh Air is out February 3 on Sinderlyn. Homesick will be promoting the record with an AdHoc-hosted residency in Brooklyn, performing at Baby’s All Right on February 21, Shea Stadium the following day, and Silent Barn on the 23rd.
