“If I leave, I’m running backwards” – that was among the many lines that accentuate Cash’s knack for compelling storytelling combined with witty penmanship. I just love that imagery and how it connects to the overarching theme.
“Bad Habits” is quite minimal when it comes to the instrumental. We’re greeted with a woozy synth arrangement underpinned by a straightforward drum pattern. This provided Cash Sinatra with a wide open canvas to paint pictures of a romance that feels unhealthy by virtue of his uncontrollable urges, and the emotion behind his delivery makes is all the more convincing.
