Who is this?
Hampshire’s own four-piece band, Habitats, have spent two years releasing music, with their most recent E.P Jungles only being released a week ago. By using different genres of music to create different sounds, and harmonies that make you want to sing along, it’s hard not to complain. Using their love of music from their teenage years, the band decided to go from making music in their own homes to making it a full time thing. Jungles brings more great alternative music to your ears and a small U.K tour in the next couple of weeks should definitely bring more attention to the band that float together.
What do they sound like?
Introducing addictive guitar beats and harmonies allowing you to realise that your feet are tapping without your knowledge. Some guitar solos are included in the track ‘Diamond Days’ and it gives it something different, but also there’s somewhat of a summer feeling to it and it’s hard not to like it. It has your usual alternative genre sound but there’s something different about this band. A good different.
For your viewing pleasure…
What’s the final verdict?
The band are building a bigger fan base, as well as playing in bigger and better venues. With the tour happening very soon, the four piece will have an even bigger following and it’s exciting to see this band get bigger and bigger. If you’re into Peace, Bombay Bicycle Club and Circa Waves then you’ll definitely enjoy the summery feel to Habitats tracks and if you’re a guitar fanatic then you’ll find your head bobbing to the guitar solos. Having built a small, but loyal fan-base in the south and in London the band are slowly becoming a big thing and they bring something different to the alternative/indie genre.
