HAND HABITS – ” Sugar the Bruise “

Posted: May 7, 2023 in MUSIC

Hand Habits has announced a new six-track collection. The EP, “Sugar the Bruise“, due out June 16 via Fat Possum. Hand Habits has also shared the first single from the collection, “Something Wrong.”

Sugar the Bruise” follows Hand Habits’ 2021 album, “Fun House“, and they co-produced it with Luke Temple. The same year as “Fun House’s” release, Hand Habits led a month-long songwriting class at School of Song, which provided the fodder for their next record. Duffy taught the month-long songwriting class in the summer of 2021 and that helped inspire the new collection of songs. Duffy worked with Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic, Art Feynman) and Philip Weinrobe (Adrienne Lenker, Cass McCombs) on “Sugar the Bruise“.

Last September Hand Habits shared two new singles: “Greatest Weapon,” which featured duo Sylvan Esso members Nick Sanborn and Amelia Meath on backing vocals, and “Under the Water,” which had Meath on lead vocals. Both singles were released as part of Psychic Hotline’s Singles Series.

“For Sugar the Bruise, I had no plan other than to let my mind go blank, and lean into the playful side of things,” Hand HabitsMeg Duffy wrote in a statement about the project. “To laugh a little, to lighten up, to shift the focus off of my own experience a bit.”
