When you walk alone, you’re never lost. That’s the operating principle behind Homeshake, the recording project of Peter Sagar. He's come a long way over the past couple of years, following his own idiosyncratic vision, a journey that’s taken him from sturdy guitar-based indie-pop to a bleary-eyed take on lo-fi R&B. Sagar wrote the majority of his latest studio album, Under The Weather., in 2019, when he was going through a long, unrelenting period of sadness.
“I was in a deep, deep depression,” he recalls of that time period now. “Tours were breaking me. It was awful.” Sagar and his partner were living in Montreal and while everyone was out being social, he was inside listening to ambient music, binging Star Trek, and writing songs. (Sounds familiar?) “It was a bit of a dark pit,” he says. “That’s kind of what the whole album is about.” Under The Weather follows Sagar’s life and the depression that consumed him in 2019. The album is hazy and moody, the pace slow as syrup, and from beginning to end, a fog falls over every synth and guitar line. From hopeless to hopeful. Live at MeetFactory on Saturday October 1 2022.
