HABITANTS was brought to live by René Rutten (The Gathering) and Gema Perèz.
They found Anne van den Hoogen (Rosemary & Garlic) to match a dark film noir sound with airy clear vocals. Along the way Mirte Heutmekers (bass) and Jerôme Miedendorp de Bie (Drive By Wire, drums) were invited to complete the band.
Trough an IndieGOGO campaign, promoted with their first song MERAKI, the band raised, in just a few days the full funding for their debut. The band made it clear they wanted to make an album to ‘escape the world.’
Habitants’ sound is mesmerising the 80s, it’s build around electric guitars shaping a dreamy, but analogue feel. The sound could recall Dead can Dance or Cocteau Twins, but any comparison is hard to make. All 9 songs on ONE SELF are overwhelming landscapes in which the minor self wanders around. He is marching, walking, sailing, running, flying or falling.
ONE SELF is about the individual, the lonely mind in a fragmented world. It deals with delusion, trauma, isolation and love. It embraces life as it comes but also as it goes. During the process of recording Gema and René lost their newborn son. ONE SELF turned out to become a dedication to him, to Vince.
