HOME BODY Live at Peskeomskut Park!
Friday, July 23, 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm
with Special Guest Holy Basil. Co-Presented by the Shea and RiverCulture. Come one, come all!!
Fever-pop duo Home Body ignores convention with their vivid blend of electronic, new wave, and experimental pop music, performed from the gut with wild abandon and art-school-cool theatricality. Balancing textured layers of juicy synthesizers, gritty beats, and tectonic bass with spirited, stormy vocals, synthesist Eric Hnatow and vocalist Haley Morgan create a visceral sonic landscape that feels equal parts cosmic, fleshy and electric. Emerging from the vibrant Western Mass music scene, Home Body plays with form and improvisation while retaining a dreamy pop sensibility and demanding presence. Live, the duo punctuates their sound with dance and DIY manual light manipulation, reaching beyond their performance to create a high-vibration spectacle that is buzzing with soul, shadow, and depth.
Sweethearts for over fourteen years, Hnatow and Morgan have been been making music as Home Body since 2011. The duo’s chemistry and unique sound have garnered an enthusiastic fan base throughout New England and beyond. Drawing comparisons to The Knife, Bjork, Sylvan Esso, and early Eurythmics, Home Body has performed over 500 shows across the North America since their inception, supporting acts such as Dan Deacon, Boy Harsher, Marco Benevento, And The Kids, Guerilla Toss, Pumarosa, and Downtown Boys. In addition to releasing their debut full length In Real Life on Feeding Tube Records, and a follow up EP Guts, the duo has scored fashion shows and dance performances and has made music for films, podcasts and commercials. Home Body’s newest full length album, ‘Spiritus’, was released April 26, 2019 on Feeding Tube Records and Peace and Rhythm and distributed through Forced Exposure. A limited edition remix cassette, ‘Tangled Up’ was released earlier this year winter on Flower Sounds.
