Mellah has released a self-destructive new video for latest single 'Habit'

Mellah has released his new single, 'Habit'.

The song arrives with a kinda bleak but also kinda fun video shot during lockdown, featuring loads of Mellahs going about their day.

“Funnily enough, Habit is about habits. Falling into the same, often harmful, cycles and vices despite knowing that the outcome will be no different from before. ‘Habit’s such a pain, pain is such a bore’. Einstein, of all people, said, 'The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results’.

“Habits breed internal conflict, instinctively knowing what is good for you but still doing the opposite. The song is about that conflict and trying to find the courage and insight to not fear change. I don’t quite know why I know all of Einstein’s quotes but he also said ’The measure of intelligence is the ability to change’. There’s nothing permanent except change.”

Of the video, he adds: “It's a sensationalist way of characterising those parts of myself that blindly walk head first into the same detrimental cycles, and me at the centre of it all seemingly having little control over any of them. All within the confines of Covid 19.”

Give it a watch below. He's also gonna play a new London show, performing at Scala on 11th February 2021.
