Listen: Ought’s mesmerizing new song “Habit”

    Ahead of the April 29th release of their debut album More Than Any Other Day, Montreal-based band Ought have shared another preview of the forthcoming effort. Whereas previous single “The Weather Song” found lead singer Tim Beeler’s gruff yelps channeling Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock, “Habit” recalls the jittery intensity of David Byrne and even a vexed Stephen Malkmus. Influenced by such heavyweights, Beeler’s mesmerizing performance effortlessly carries the song, while twinkling and jangly guitars slowly build and crescendo around him. Listen in below (via Pitchfork).

    More Than Any Other Day is out April 29th via Constellation.
