Their debut EP was a paradoxical mix of quantized percision, and unpredictable chaos. Husky Loops‘ debut EP was pitch black and mechanical, yet full of self expression and erratic, soulful musical detours. In those 4 short tracks the Italian born / London Royal Collage of Art schooled quartet managed to deliver one of the most intriguing debuts of the year (in our opinion anyway).
6 months on and they’re back with a new EP, promising more of that unorthodox spin on modern rock. The first track to be shared from the record is the hazy and surprisingly sunny (well, slightly), ‘Girl Who Wants to Travel The World‘. Watch the video, directed by Tom Ringbsy, below.
Taking a slightly lighter musical path than previous efforts, ‘The Girl…’ moves from hazy piano and guitar led verses into a Morrissey-like, unambiguous chorus. Breezy at times, but still still unmistakably Husky Loops, modulated guitars and those prominent, shimmering hi-hats cut through the calm, making for yet another joyous sub 4-minute journey.
Husky Loops EP2 is due out on October 6th via Alcopop! Records.
