Hand Habits Unveils Music Video For “Private Life”

Though their work often features folky arrangements and occasional synthesizers, Hand Habits—aka Meg Duffy—has opted for a stark, piano-driven melody (courtesy of Ethan Gruska) on their tender new single “Private Life.” In a solemn moment of reflection, Duffy considers how they might continue occupying the space of a bygone loved one. “You, the one who loved so fearlessly / Watch you burn up in the summer glow / I was on the roof sweeping your gutters clean / Always admiring you, above and below,” they sing.

“Private Life” marks Duffy’s second teaser release ahead of their forthcoming EP Sugar the Bruise, which arrives June 16 via Fat Possum Records and is the follow-up to their 2021 Hand Habits album Fun House. Coinciding with the EP will be a run of show dates beginning in May.
