Husky Loops are a band set on breaking the rules, bending genre boundaries and stepping boldly into the unknown. Their tracks strike a perfect balance between the unhinged nature of their live shows and the meticulous detail that goes into every one of their studio recordings.
Critically adored by musicians, bands and press alike - frequently described as unique, un-pigeonhole-able, visceral live, huge epic tunes and more recently “pissed off pop”.
Drawing personal inspirations from everything from rock to hip-hop, naming influences all the way from Black Sabbath to Aphex Twin to D'Angelo, the band's two EPs reflect the hard work and imaginative songwriting the three have participated in over the past 12 months.
On Husky Loops, the band explained “it means rough loops: it stems from our fascination with repetition, playing loops from a rock perspective”.
Made up of Danio (vocals & guitar), Pietro (drums & samples) and Tommaso (bass), Husky Loops first met at school in Bologna, Italy. Fast forward fifteen years to a relocation to London to study at music college and the Royal College of Art, they joined forces to form their ultimate creation, which started just over two years
Last year Husky Loops were invited by Placebo, The Kills and Spoon to be their main support on tours both in the UK and Europe; this allowed the band to embark on 3 European tours in the second half of 2017, including headline slots that saw them sell out shows in Amsterdam and Bologna.
Husky Loops’ latest track ‘When I Come Home’, produced by Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Franz Ferdinand) was released by the band’s own label ‘ Fighting Ourselves” . About the song the band said: " it's a song about relationships. The lyrics can be seen as quite generic but in fact they're intended to talk to everyone and they don’t refer to anyone specific. There are many things we don’t say to partners, relatives or friends we truly love. Eventually we all go home and misunderstand each other, but we all need that one person that personifies security and deep affection.
As a band we don’t want to stop changing and experimenting and for these reasons this song felt right to start with in 2018. Hopefully you’ll wonder good things while dancing with a little tear in your eye."
The song marked the beginning of the year along with the band’s first UK headline tour, culminated in a sold out London show at The Lexington.
