Habitats Band

Introducing Habitats, an indie/alternative band based (loosely) around the London and Hampshire area. Having impressed the folks over at XFM with their debut single Diamond Days, the band are back with their latest release 'Peace of Mind', an indie funk track coming in just short of the four minute mark. Well worth a listen.



I was given the chance to put a few questions to the band, but being the cheeky scoundrels they are these questions which were answered in a slightly haphazard fashion. Take the following answers with a pinch of salt (although they did select a corker of a Kanye West quote)!

1. What is your favourite album and why?

Songs Of Praise, much loved hymn's by various artists

2. What is your least favourite album and why?

Habitats, Greatest Hits...

3. What made you start making music together?

A passage from 1 Corinthians 14:15 - What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also

We also read it in a fortune cookie and OK magazine as top 10 things to do before you die.

4. Right now, what are you most looking forward to?

Cliff Richard's next christmas calendar of course

Also continuing our residency at The Old Blue Last - (29th Oct & 7th Nov) and releasing our E.P. in February.

5. Favourite swear word?

Cheesetits

6. Do you have a favourite Kanye West Quote?

"[We] brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said 'no.' How many motherfuckers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?"

7. Do you have a favourite inspirational Quote?

"[We] brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said 'no.' How many motherfuckers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?"

8. If you weren't in a band, what profession would you like to attempt and why?

Professional Librarian. For the chicks.

9. What profession would you not like to attempt and why?

Journalist for a music magazine/blog, as it would be extremely hard to decipher whether bands are telling the truth, taking the piss or just trying way too hard to be funny....

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

Are these real pearls on the gate or are your just REALLY happy to see us? Hendrix has just ran you a nice hot bath, you must be quite tired after the ordeal of Life.

Peace of mind is released on the 3rd of November.
