Raave Tapes – Habitual

On their new single, Australian duo Raave Tapes push their experimental pop sound one step further. Habitual contains both massive pop hooks and bursts of glitched-out noise and crushing, distorted bass. ย They blow the dust off industrial, so to speak.

While recording the song, Lindsey Oโ€™Connell and Joab Eastley used Lady Gaga, Nelly Furtado, Charli XCX and Nine Inch Nails as references. Eastley recalls: โ€œThroughout the recording process, we found moments where we asked ourselves โ€˜Can we get away with this? Are we allowed to do it?โ€™ Then we remembered that the points are made-up and nothing actually matters. We stood by our game-plan of unapologetically committing to guilty pleasures. Live it up baby.โ€

Lyrically, the track holds some pleasant surprises as well. How about the line โ€˜I put the โ€˜bitchโ€™ in โ€˜habitualโ€™, you put the โ€˜dickโ€™ in โ€˜predictableโ€™? Classic, Iโ€™d say.

With its beautiful verses and crunchy choruses, Habitual is instantly addictive.
