Guitarist Peter Sagar has left Mac DeMarco’s band to pursue his solo project HOMESHAKE. But not to worry—Andy White of Tonstartssbandht is here to save the day, sporting all-American apparel no less. DeMarco’s video for his cover of the Herb Alpert classic, “This Guy’s In Love With You” features hazy VHS footage of his new guitarist romping around New York doing push-ups, chasing flocks of pigeons, and proudly displaying his American flag for passersby. The slow and sultry rendition of song features sweeping flanged guitar alongside Mac’s dreamy vocals.
“Although the city has many secrets, I know I will soon uncover them and learn the lessons that it has to teach me,” Andy intimates for us. We can’t wait to see what rock music adventures are in store as he and Mac embark on this journey together. Maybe they’ll end up watching Cheers and Family Ties together.
