Hand Habits will release their new album “Fun House” on October 22nd, and here’s one last early taste before the whole thing drops. “Clean Air” is an arresting, sweeping rock ballad featuring The War on Drugs‘ Dave Hartley on bass. “When writing songs for “Fun House”, I had become exhausted and bored by the idea of writing more songs out of blame, spite, or anger,” says Meg Duffy. “‘Clean Air’ is about finding clarity, leaning into acceptance, and acknowledging someone else’s experience as truth without blame or resentment, even when it differs from our own.”

The song comes with a gorgeously shot black and white video directed by V Haddad,

Excited to share my personal favourite track on “Fun House”, “No Difference”. With this song, I was trying to capture the cyclical essence of projection and how it can really block authentic connection. (….I think? Songs seem to change and develop lives of their own with time…my wish is that you project your own life experience onto the song and make it your own)This video is close to my heart, as the guy on the motorcycle happens to be my father, Dan Duffy. Everything just worked out that day. It was 4th of July, and Dad suggested going to his ‘spiritual place’ that has a panoramic view of the Mohawk valley. Filming the bike scenes was the first time I got on the back of the bike with him, and when I first saw this footage that V and Adam captured I was speechless.

It feels close to countless dreams I’ve had; aimlessly walking around but with a distinct yet intangible purpose, my dad is there.
