I can't say I've listened to much music coming out of Tel-Aviv in my time but if Document are anything to go by I might invest more time in the Israeli city.
Formed by vocalist Nir Ben Jacob and comprising Yanniv Brenner (Guitar), Amit David (Bass) and Amir Reich (Drums), Document's new single "Habit" is a glorious arrangement of fuzzy guitars and driving percussion. Taking influence from 80s post-punk pioneers such as Wire and The Fall as well as 90s bands like Fugazi and Dinosaur Jr. Document instill their sound with a garage rock ethos that's plain to hear in "Habit." Of the track itself Jacob says this:
"It’s semi-autobiographical, describing moves to different continents and having nowhere to belong. It explores the idea that people are who they are because of where they are born and where they have lived. How do you define yourself if you've moved between cultures? In the US you are literally labelled an 'alien'. You feel isolated, you spend time alone, becoming a habit to yourself."
"Habit" is the third single taken from their forthcoming album, The Void Repeats, recorded at The Junk in Tel Aviv and mixed by Bill Skibbe of Key Club Recording (The Black Keys, Protomartyr, Blonde Redhead, The Kills).
