Fans of Mac DeMarco, Boy Pablo and No Vacation will definitely love this too! Vienna-based singer-songwriter / multi-instrumentalist Peter Mathis aka Peter The Human Boy is back with his sophomore album Stranger’s Life. Listening to these 10 slacker-rock tracks is like giving yourself a present: summery and down to earth music with unforgettable melodies and hopeful messages that makes you feel good. It’s 37 minutes and 44 seconds of dreamy indie pop with jangly guitars, vintage synthesizers, comforting vocals, and melancholic lyrics. Between the lines you can hear the aftermath of the pandemic (“Strange times // Why don’t you // Pass by // Give me back // My life”), but overall Peter’s quest for certainty about himself and the world is promising and optimistic. Don’t we all live a stranger’s life? Press play below: you’re in for a treat!
Stranger’s Life is out now digitally, on cassette and vinyl LP through Chalkpit Cassette Club and Human Music.
