Oozing with primal urgency and self-loathing, “Kick the Habit” is the latest single from Cincinnati trio Leggy.
A bouncing slab of subterranean proto-punk, “Kick the Habit” details a booty call set to a B-52s groove laid by bassist Kerstin Bladh and drummer Christopher Campbell, with singer/guitarist Veronique Allaer opining, “I really really do want to stop wanting you / But I just can’t break the habit”.
Slated as the opening track on Leggy’s forthcoming self-titled LP, Leggy will serve as a primer with “Kick the Habit” followed by songs handpicked from the band’s previous three EPs: 2014’s Cavity Castle, 2015’s Nice Try and this year’s Dang.
Leggy will be released on 29 April via Damnably Records. Stream “Kick the Habit” below.
