On the heels of announcing his new album, Toronto-based musician Homeshake, born Peter Sagar, returns to share a new offering from Under The Weather. Designed and directed by Pete Sharp, “Passenger Seat” is an animated, intergalactic highway short that perfectly captures the track’s intimate and meticulously crafted soundscape. “The details in each scene are amazing,” Sagar says. “They compliment the minimalist production of the song so well.” Of the collaboration, Pete Sharp says, “I love the music of Homeshake! When I heard the title ‘Passenger seat’ I thought ‘passenger seat—cars—traffic jam—in space?’ I think the slow moving interstellar pile up really reflects the pace and mood of the track. I hope the general public does too!” The song is the second track from the album following “Vacuum”, which arrived alongside an animated video directed by Jordan Speer and produced by Brain Dead Studios.
