Home Body will release their new album Spiritus on April 26 via via Feeding Tube Records and Peace & Rhythm (pre-order). The official video for the "DNA”, the first single from the forthcoming release is ready for you to watch below!

About the song the band adds:

Over the course of making Spiritus we experienced several large losses in our close friend group and well as our biological families, including both of Eric parents. Watching people we love suffer and face the reality of death, and supporting close friends through their journeys with grief, has certainly shifted our relationship to life and living. It feels even more important now that we prioritize matters of the heart and spirit, aligning our time and energy in pursuit of joy and connection. 'DNA' was written while thinking about inherited trauma and resiliency, curiosity about our ancestors, recognizing our biological gifts, and cycles of life and death. We worked with Patty Bella Gone on the creation of this music video. We became big fans of Patty after seeing their video work 'Painted Dreams,' which poetically connected soap operas with professional sports, gender, memory, and consumerism. Many important personal objects are featured in the video, anchoring our own realities within the skewed world of the video, imagining alternate realities where we are simultaneously gods and pawns.


Home Body have also announce a US tour in support of Spirtius which kicks off this Friday. The tour will include performances in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Chapel Hill, Chicago as well as performances as SXSW and Savannah Stopover. All upcoming shows are listed below.

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 thirteen years, Hnatow and Morgan have 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 close to 400 shows across North America since their inception, supporting acts such as Dan Deacon, Boy Harsher, Marco Benevento, And The Kids, Guerilla Toss, Pumarosa, TEEN and Downtown Boys. In addition to releasing their debut full length In Real Life on Feeding Tube Records, and a follow-up EP Guts (2014), the duo has scored fashion shows and dance performances and has made music for films and commercials.
