Released on Friday, 31 January, the Habit EP is a tribute to acoustic instruments and live bands. Habit EP is a beautiful display of the versatile artist’s authentic and natural sound. The EP has been worked on both in Finland and in Austin, Texas, where Siru was writing songs in the spring of 2018. The EP is produced by Jouko Lavonen and mastered by Abbey Road Studios’ Christian Wright, who has worked with Ed Sheeran and Franz Ferdinand, among others.
As the project started, Siru gave herself the freedom to create music regardless of language and style. The language change from Finnish into English seemed natural, as she now felt that she wanted to write her music in English. This makes it more accessible to international audiences, too.
“In the summer of 2017, I was tired of the fact that contemporary music was dominated by electronic music. I wanted to make a record that was played on real instruments and recorded with an actual band. That's what music essentially is, created by people playing musical instruments," the artist tells about the background of her EP.
