This versatility is a hallmark of the album. As the review mentioned, “Habitat” defies easy categorization. The shimmering guitars, a familiar element, weave through the soundscapes, grounding the more adventurous electronic elements. This creates a unique sonic tapestry that caters to a variety of listeners.

Tracks like “Salt and Water” propel you forward with a driving beat, all straight through to “Back to Elsinore” descends into the depths of the ocean with hazy guitars and distorted soundscapes.

“Consequence,” a brief interlude, throws a curveball. Distorted, echoing sounds and a hypnotic bassline create a sense of unease, perhaps reflecting a moment of self-doubt or a brush with darkness on the path of self-discovery.

You’ll notice the album explores themes of uncovering and navigating the complexities of the modern world. The combination of introspective lyrics and the band’s sonic experimentation creates a truly captivating listening experience.

Tracks like “Triple Peaks” evoke this feeling perfectly, with a slow-building melody that set off into a kaleidoscope of electronic feel and echoing guitar riffs.

“Afraid of Our Kind,” for example, might hint at feelings of alienation and searching for connection in a society that can feel isolating. It’s about ninety-percent lyrics-less soundtrack, having few murmuring and whispers.

On the other end of the spectrum is “Far Away.” This short, ethereal piece features a lone, floating vocal melody backed by sparse instrumentation.

“Habitat” is more than just a collection of songs, it’s one after the other chains of peace. Each track builds upon the last, creating a cohesive and immersive soundscape. Whether you choose to use it as a soundtrack for your day or dedicate some focused listening time, Deep Dive Species’ sophomore effort is a rewarding exploration of electronic and alternative music.
