RAAVE TAPES have shared new single ‘Habitual’, an electronics-heavy cut that sees the Novocastrian duo continue to pair infectious melodies with more abrasive elements.
Produced by Fletcher Matthews, the band’s Lindsay O’Connell takes centre stage on this one – with her soaring, emotionally-charged vocals punctuated by bursts of glitched-out noise and crushing, distorted bass.
The new single arrives alongside a Maya Luana-directed video that stars O’Connell – watch it below:
‘Habitual’ is the second single RAAVE TAPES have released this year, following up ‘Red Flag’ back in March.
“I watched [RAAVE TAPES] play from the side at a show we were both playing about two years ago and they instantly became my favourite band in NSW,” the Sydney producer commented at the time.
“That night I made a mental note that someday I’d make a song they would want to be part of and the song would encompass both of our energies and styles.”
RAAVE TAPES will launch ‘Habitual’ with a pair of shows at Crowbar in Sydney tomorrow night (November 26) with support from Poolroom. The late session is sold out, but tickets for the earlier session are available here.
