Hand Habits - Greatest Weapon / Under The Water (Digital)


Greatest Weapon + Under The Water digital single

"Greatest Weapon" b/w "Under the Water" comes from Hand Habits, the moniker of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Meg Duffy. The A-side, "Greatest Weapon," is about coming to grips with the dance of time. It was written with Ethan Gruska and recorded in his home studio in Los Angeles, and mixed with Joseph Lorge at Sound City Studios. The track also features Nick Sanborn and Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso on background vocals.

"Under the Water," its B-side, features Meath at the helm on vocals. She wrote the lyrics all in one go, about learning how to hold her head underwater when she was a kid was a moment of independence that she hadn’t been expecting. All of the sudden she was able to be completelyalone in the pool, even when she was surrounded by people. The pair of songs is the latest collaboration from the two longtime friends and collaborators, who recently made music together when Duffy joined the expanded Sylvan Esso live band on their WITH tour, and for the subsequent live album release WITH LOVE.
