Steve Lacy returns to the scene with the release of his newest single, “Bad Habit”, not too soon after the release of his exceptional song “Mercury” earlier this month. Lacy fans have been waiting for a new project after the successful delivery of his last project, The Lo-Fis in 2020. He has not disappointed anyone with either of these phenomenal singles so far. These songs are being released ahead of Steve's new album, which he recently revealed is titled, Gemini Rights.
The song, “Bad Habit”, starts with a blast of Steve’s usual funky guitar and punchy drums. He also stacks beautiful harmonies, and toys with a high-pitched synth throughout the song. The song breaks at the end, allowing for listeners to really delve into Steves magnificent harmonies. The track explores the themes of losing out on a potential lover due to fear of rejection. Steve expresses that he has a “bad habit” of biting his tongue and not sharing how he truly feels when he is secretly interested in someone. He wonders if he still has a chance with the possible love interest as he realizes he's not over them just yet.
Fans all over social media are raving about the relatability of this track, especially on TikTok, with users making about 10K videos to the song so far. Steve himself has even hopped on the app, feeding fans even more by revealing the chord progression to the track. People are truly excited to hear what he has in store with his new album, which is being released on July 15th.
