Reliably informed

The latest offering from Newcastle based singer-songwriter Pete Beat is a brooding and beautiful vignette to dissolution that creeps its way in to your room clutching the terrors of the night-time. Musically sparse and delicate throughout, the reverb-heavy guitars, feather light synth strings and gentle metronomic percussion camouflage the disconcerting dark lyrical content at its core, all delivered in Pete’s insidious broad Geordie baritone that plunges you into a heartbroken black hole from the opening couplet; “It’s getting dark, and this night has nothing for you”.

Equal parts Machiavellian and gallows humour, Homesick Night is a substantive celebration of desolation and the after-hours. For fans of Arab Strap/Lambchop.

Released: 19.02.21
