TUNE Alice Hubble - Kick The Habit
On ‘Kick The Habit’, Alice's second single, Alice offers her distinct take on the 70’s glam rock sound. Part Goldfrapp, part Suzi Quatro. ‘Kick The Habit’ was written after Alice finished a tour supporting Canadian band Black Mountain. Says Alice: “Black Mountain’ are masters of the ‘big riff’. After listening to them night on night, I was inspired to attempt my own ‘big riff’ song drawing further inspiration from bands like Goldfrapp and Ladytron and 70’s glam rock and prog to shape the final song.”
The lyrics were inspired by Black Narcissus, the 1940’s psychological drama about the emotional tensions of jealousy and lust within a convent of nuns living in the Himalayas. “With the lyrics I wanted to portray aspects of the journey central character Sister Ruth goes through in rejecting the sisterhood and embracing her sexuality”.
