Home Body’s new album, Spiritus, is available soon on Peace & Rhythm, in collaboration with Feeding Tube.
“Spacious, reflective, and textured, crafted with a precision that gives vivid life to each sonic detail. The soaring voice of Haley Morgan and the throbbing, hovering electronics of Eric Hnatow create songs that are always on the rise, grounded by cardiac beats but unafraid to fly into the sun. In its wide arrangements, sharply-honed turns, and ever-ascending moods, Home Body’s music is as three-dimensional as real life. ” — Marc Masters
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 twelve 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 the Northeast U.S. and beyond. Drawing comparisons to The Knife, Bjork, Sylvan Esso, and early Eurythmics, Home Body has performed close to 400 shows across the North America since their inception, supporting acts such as Dan Deacon, Boy Harsher, Marco Benevento, TEEN, Guerilla Toss, Pumarosa, and Downtown Boys. In addition to their debut full length In Real Life (2012), and a follow up EP Guts (2014), the duo has scored fashion shows and dance performances and has made music for films and commercials.
