After two standalone singles earlier this year, Hand Habits will be releasing a new album in October. Fun House is coming out on Saddle Creek and will be the follow-up to highly acclaimed Placeholder from two years ago. I saw Hand Habits play in Melbourne last year, where they also played at least one new song but I don’t remember which. The 2021 singles “Motherless” and “Dirt” were quite different, with the Sub Pop-released “Motherless” being more electronic. Following the experimental release as yes/and, Meg Duffy seems to have combined all of these branches of their artistry into the new album as the singles “Aquamarine” and “No Difference” seem to suggest. Each shows a different side to Hand Habits’ music.
