Hand Habits will release a new EP entitled dirt on February 19 through Saddle Creek. The two-song EP features the single, “4th of july.”

Hand Habits is the project led by multi-instrumentalist Meg Duffy. Duffy recorded dirt in Los Angeles at the home studio located in the shared living space they live in with fellow musicians Sasami Ashworth and Kyle Thomas (King Tuff). Ashworth co-produced “4th of july” and Thomas co-produced the other dirt track, a cover of Neil Young’s “I Believe In You.”

Duffy stated the following regarding “4th of july” and its accompanying video:

“4th of july” feels like trying again, rolling around in the wreckage of the past and finding new ways out of the maze of memory. For the video, I went to [director] V [Haddad] and [cinematographropher] Adam [Gundersheimer] and said I wanted to “just dig a hole” and they turned that idea into a cinematic version of what it looks like to try and get to the bottom of a feeling.
