HABITATS - Band of the Month April 2014

This month's BOTM on Kool Rock Radio is London indie alternative/tropical groove four-piece HABITATS

Based loosely in the heart and soul of London and the Hampshire area, the band consist of Mike Lawford (takes a hip flask wherever he goes, the cheap bastard), James Furniss (climbs trees on a daily basis), Joe Payne (gets distracted by all things shiny) and Adam Saunders (has the beautiful moustache of a '70s porn star). They seem to relish the idea of not having a specific frontman, with each of them providing enough strong characteristics in the music to be able to swap microphones at will in the live arena. 

Since the release of their first bedroom demo in March 2013 they have secured a deal with Rough Trade publishing, as well as gaining interest from international management teams and various hi-falutin’ labels. Better still HABITATS started 2014 with a slot at fierce panda's cruelly beautiful New Year Pandamonium '14 event at the Old Blue Last alongside the likes of Department M and The Death Of Pop. Throw in recent support slots for JAWS, Animal Kingdom and Superfood at a variety of toppermost venues down south and you sense that HABITATS are a band who are itching to break out of their, well, habitat. 

"Diamond Days" is their debut single release, and an exotic, hectically sweet-natured debut. It is available now via Fandango


** Habitats single "Jungles" peaked at #37 in our Best Tracks of 2013 chart.

About, the video, directed by by Nic McKenzie (Deep Sea Arcade), lead singer Spencer White explains "The overall concept was to have something that captured the song’s mood, there wasn’t a real plan set in stone but Nic and I had just bounced ideas off one another for the few months leading up to it. I think by doing that it kept the whole shoot really exciting and enjoyable for all of us."
