Meg Duffy’s latest outing under the Hand Habits moniker is a further kaleidoscopic insight into the mind of an accomplished musician with far more to offer the world beyond playing guitar for many of their US indie contemporaries. ‘Fun House’ sees Duffy traverse multiple sonic terrains, often in the spaces of a single song, as they lean on everything from soaring heartland rock (‘Concrete And Feathers’), thoughtful folk balladry (‘Graves’) to lo-fi, hook-laden dance pop (Aquamarine).
A luscious record bursting with ideas, technical flourishes and unexpected turns - ‘Fun House’ is Duffy’s greatest achievement yet.
