about

"It takes audacity to start a song with questions as big and unanswerable as “Where did we come from? Who are we really?” But for Western Massachsuetts duo Home Body, those kind of grand cosmic queries are totally natural, fitting snugly into music that digs deep and shoots for the stars. 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.

On their ambitious second full-length record, Spiritus, Home Body ruminates on darkness, the light, and all the tiny intangible shifts that add up to transformation and change. Three years in the making, the self-produced album is lush with character and detail, displaying moments of ecstatic high energy melting into soft expansion, coaxed along by ghostly textured synths, momentum mounting, spirit settling. Romantic partners for over a decade and collaborators for almost as long, Morgan and Hnatow have been creatively telepathic for a while, and on Spiritus their innate connections produce songs in which every joint and muscle works in consort. “The pieces of the puzzle fit together like voices,” Morgan sings in “Lightning,” succinctly describing the duo’s tightly-knit music.

Home Body aren’t afraid to sprawl, though. Their live performances are often dizzying spectacles featuring a home-made light show and elements of modern dance. Spiritus may present only the audio portion of that two-person extravaganza, but in its wide arrangements, sharply-honed turns, and ever-ascending moods, Home Body’s music is as three dimensional as real life." - Marc Masters, 2019

Track Name: DNA
We come from a long, long line of bodies
We wear their shadows behind closed eyes
Passing breaths, inheriting our heartbeats
I’ll be a good god, show me how

Not the first to pass on down the hallway
We time our time and then take a bow
How did you get through into the new you?
Well if you knew once then you’ll know now

What you feel
In your body / mind
Anything
Go ahead take your time
In between
Every day is the night
Oh, am I nothing without my blood?

More than fleshy cups we are the spring and
Our veins bring fresh taste to our tongues
Keep your water sweet but unpolluted
You’ll be a good god, I’ll show you how

And you’ll feel
Your body and mind
Everything
Matter and time
In between
Every day is the night

DNA TBD OK
Through and through another way okay,
DNA TBD OK
Through and through another way okay, ok, we’re ok
Track Name: Comet
Where did we come from who are we really
Where did we come from who are we really
Where did we come from who are we really
It’ll take a while, it might take a while cuz

Ours is a two headed streak bound across the sky
It’ll take a while, it might take a while but
Ours is a burning rock

Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh

Ours is a cosmic clock chiming on the hour
It might take a while, it’ll be back in a while and
Ours is a true test of love

Ahh, Ahh
