As seen on the cover of Metroland, on stages from Albany to Chicago, and opening for The Polyphonic Spree among many, many others, Hand Habits are set to play another stripped down arrangement of their intense but fragile dream pop. Featuring local heart-throb Meg Duffy and former/current members of Soft powers., MaryLeigh and the Fauves, Babe City, Aficionado, and Caleb Lionheart, Hand Habits are among the best and brightest local musicians this area has to offer.

“The brainchild of songwriter/guitarist Meg Duffy, Hand Habits have come a rather long way since the sparse home recordings of last year’s 5 song Pinky Demos. “Wonder What” is a testament to that, Hand Habits normal yawny bloom is thrown into overdrive – quicker, more cacophonous, and yet with a restraint that feels very in character with the band’s sleepy melodies.” — I GUESS I’M FLOATING | BLOG

“Railbird, Sean Rowe and Phantogram have all had recent success breaking through the tricky system of locks that hides the Capital Region’s artistic treasures. Couched in those terms, Hand Habits’ recent buzz makes sense. Although, in light of others’ success and the deep hooks in the band’s music, it is not as surprising as it once was. Seeing a local act gets so much well-deserved attention so early in their career is exhilarating.” — METROLAND
