Habibi are venturing into the unknown. While their self-titled debut “combine[d] the Colgate-white glisten of sixties-girl-group pop with an uncensored edge” (The New Yorker), their sophomore album ‘Anywhere but Here’, responds to a current global climate of unease, weaving colorful 60’s refrains with moodier, more expansive sonic textures. Recorded in the XL Recordings studios with producer Alex Epton, with the ability to experiment with instruments like the ney flute, the sitar & tombak percussions that continue to tell the story of their history and heritage, the album culminates in Habibi’s most studied and mature record to date. Their celebration of female friendship through trying times of doubt and uncertainty and trust in their process come through the deliberate structures, warm synchronization of guitars, and lyricisms that echo throughout. The songs that make up ‘Anywhere but Here’ pose if not universal solutions, then honest perspectives on navigating a place that can feel more unfamiliar by the day, and finding the universal truths that ground us and challenge who we are.‘Anywhere but Here’ comes out via Muddguts Records on February 14th.
