Bio

Husky's live show is crafted to take audiences on a journey through their captivating songs. This has earned the Australian quartet critical praise for their "lush...warm and evocative" (Sydney Morning Herald) and "outstanding" (Beat Magazine) performances. "Their live craft is so assured that it lands in the heady realm of being downright enchanting" (shout4music.com). Husky's album, 'Forever So', is a full-realized, long-playing album that holds up start-to-finish, from catchy opener "Tidal Wave," with its hum-along harmonies and surprise psychedelic midsection, to the understated, intertwined brass parts that conclude "Farewell (in 3 Parts)." In the syncopated rhythms of "Hundred Dollar Suit" or the reverberating piano strings and laid back bass that underpin "The Woods," you can sense fingers moving over instruments and lungs giving breath to voices, the unfolding of ephemeral ideas into fresh yet fully-realized songs taking forth before your very ears.

This is pure class. A near perfect song that I will score 5/5 for anyway. A new album is due soon from this mob.
