Brief Habit 04:09
When the weekend drives turn into endless nights We'll stay out 'till 2 a.m., wake up and start again Yeah, I know - I left this right? I've sworn it off one thousand times But when summer slides in and asks "What are you drinking? I know we're drinking again tonight" When the perfect days leave us without complaint We tend to test our faith and build up walls to fight the case That this could be all we ever need if we just justify the ends by simple means Goddamn, it's summer again Fall back into the ocean's arms So glad I found you again In all the lies that light these bars This is a love for the living We'll end up sleeping in our cars Goddamn, it's summer again But at the end of the night all those lights are far too bright She said "How about we get out of here?" I said, "Yeah, alright." Out in the ocean mist with the taste of a stranger's tongue The sea salt on our lips, this repetition has begun.

Lennons Song 04:44
Well there isn't much that I can say It's more than what I can afford Now that I've given all these words away Just watch me stumble across the stage Because I could never really ask you to stay So you had to go Now I have to know Am I all used up? Did I waste my love on you? Am I used all used up? Did I waste my time on you? Of all that comes between tomorrow and today You grasp on tightly to the sword And strike out at all that got away Because you never really need them anyway.

The debut full length from Brief Habits refuses to be pinned down, rather the record spans the sonic spectrum with an impressive collection of power pop song craft, steadfast hooks and piano interwoven textural soundscapes.

Self-recorded by the band in a small industrial practice space on the outskirts of Northern Brisbane, Dan's distinctive vocal would attract attention from J Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines, Government Issue), who then mixed what would become their S/T album. A bittersweet gem, this is a record of celebration and hard-truths, from four friends who just really want to make music together.
