ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Drab Habit is a Dublin-born, London-based human male. His debut EP, Epic, a small assortment of self-produced, personal compositions, was released in December 2016. The sequel, Progress, expands on the content of it's predecessor - expect bigger, more progressive arrangements, employing a much broader palette of sounds and drawing on a far wider range of influences.

A self-taught guitarist first and foremost, Drab Habit's early musical interest was firmly rooted in the Seattle grunge scene, with a sprinkling of 60s & 70s classic rock: Pearl Jam, Soundgarden & Stone Temple Pilots meets Hendrix & Led Zep. But, with age and through involvement in a variety of different projects, tastes broadened and he became increasingly interested in more diverse recording and production techniques. The first forays into self-production were heavily guitar-based arrangements, recorded on a trusty Boss BR900 8-track recorder, with which he still refuses to part. Nowadays, while a Gibson Les Paul and an Epiphone Sheraton II still take pride of place in his home studio, keyboards, synths and strings now play a prominent role in many of his compositions.

Epic was the culmination of early explorations into recording with this wider range of tools. The result was a short series of individual, self-contained soundtracks and this theme continues on Progress. Built on a strong foundation of prog-rock, the tracks range from spacey electronica to hindi-chill to orchestral soundtracks. Described variously as unique, refreshing, bold and atmospheric, pre-release listener reaction has been extremely positive.
