Reclusive Habits is a collaboration between Perth musicians Nathan Menage and Asher James. This new project explores a more experimental side to their music, showcasing the depth and emotion of Asher’s songwriting, combined with Nathan’s skills behind the desk. The project was completed at SAE Institute in Perth for Nathan’s final major project, and is a showpiece for his time there

The project started as a collection of songs written by Asher over a few years, through which he explored new sides to his music. The songs feature elements of grunge, RnB, psychedelia and even trap, and combine a myriad of influences to create something unique and special. The songs also reveal a more personal side to Asher’s songwriting, alluding to concepts of dejection, uncertainty, love and euphoria

released December 15, 2017.
