Hand Habits, aka Meg Duffy, has released a new video for their new single ‘4th of July’ from their new EP ‘dirt’, which drops on February 19th via Saddle Creek.
It’s a track that focuses on finding ways to let go of the parts of the past that no longer serve a purpose. of the song and it’s accompanying video, Meg says, “‘4th of july‘ feels like trying again, rolling around in the wreckage of the past and finding new ways out of the maze of memory. For the video, I went to V and Adam and said I wanted to ‘just dig a hole’ and they turned that idea into a cinematic version of what it looks like to try and get to the bottom of a feeling.”
It’s a sedate, but emotive slice of indie folk. Instruments sounds almost incidental past the strum of the guitar, but as they flit in and out as the track builds, so they shine a little more light on the track. As it finally flowers, it shows what it is, a beautiful slice of melancholic pop music, with Duffy comfort blanket of a voice wrappping itself tight around you.
