If you live for a sweaty circle pit and think it wasn't a good show unless the singer bled a little, please enjoy this angsty anthem from North Wales post-punk outfit HABITS. "Work", which comes from their latest EP, Falling Fluent, eloquently details the plight of the millennial: a generation who is aspirational, overworked, and underpaid. An EP described by singer Sam Davies as, "a meditation on fucking up," Falling Fluent, whilst overwhelmingly nihilistic in nature, is superbly succinct with its subject matter, which varies from hopelessness and self destruction to jealousy and romantic failure. There's little room for misinterpretation with what the five-piece is trying to convey as each track rolls on.
The band recently performed a sold out EP release show in their hometown at the popular arts space Pie Records and have a string of dates left for the remainder of the year. If you're like me and can't wait to hear more from these guys, fear not, they are working on both new material and more tour dates for 2018.
