[SONG OF THE DAY] Husky Loops - "I Think You're Wonderful"

The Husky hunnies have returned with a new track from their highly anticipated debut full-length I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH, which is now out on September 6th. “I Think You’re Wonderful” is an uplifting track about universal love, which could not come at a more appropriate time in the world’s current state. As singer Danio Forni mused, “I want people to listen to this one and feel encouraged to tell someone they care about that they’re wonderful.[…] Human beings are hard-wired to notice and remember negative news and events, but we need to have hope, we have to fight to stay happy and sane.”

What a lovely bunch of fellas, let me tell you. With an equally lovely song I might add. In the same way that with their previous single, “Everyone Is Having Fun Fun Fun But Me”, the trio has leveraged a catchy ass hook on repeat for the chorus, only this time instead of showcasing anxiety, you just find yourself so overwhelmed with joy. Every time I’ve played this song thus far I have thought of someone new that I want to send this song to so they know how much I care. Not too many songs can evoke that as effortlessly as Husky Loops has on this one.

In addition to the new track, I am happy to report that the band has also announced that they will be hitting the road in support of I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH starting with an album release party on August 15th at Rye Wax in London before hitting the road for most of October.

Also spoiler alert: yours truly has been blessed and has had a chance to give I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH a few spins and I have nothing but wonderful things to say, which I will share through closer to the release date. In the meantime, trust yer girl that you are gonna wanna pre-order this one.

[WATCH] Husky Loops - "Everyone Is Having Fun Fun Fun But Me (Official Video)"

Husky hunnies have returned to share the video for their latest single, “Everyone Is Having Fun Fun Fun But Me”, from their forthcoming debut full-length, I Can’t Even Speak English, arriving on August 16th. The video is a blatant nod to The Verve’s 1997 classic, “Bittersweet Symphony”, a personal all-time favorite of Danio Forni. Whereas with “Bittersweet Symphony” singer Richard Ashcroft defiantly stomps down the street with people on the street reacting to being bodychecked by him, in the Husky Loops update Danio is met with an onslaught of resistance as he attempts to stroll down Peckham High Street in the middle of the night. Shot in one take, the video features collaborators and old friends including Joy Anonymous, MEI and niceboy. We also eventually see the rest of the band make an appearance near the end of the video.

I’ll admit, it’s mildly upsetting to watch people give Danio so much shit. Eventually you’re like, “Damn leave the dude alone already!” 😂

Oh PS - if you follow the band on Instagram they’ve been sharing some behind the scenes footage as they wrap up I Can’t Even Speak English. Yer girl got her ears on like 10 seconds of the previously mentioned track, “Fuck Me Naturally” and I am all the more eager to get my ears on this record.

Oh happy day! Husky Loops are back and they brought a MOOD along with news about their forthcoming debut full-length. The new track, “Everyone Having Fun Fun Fun But Me” is the anxiety laden anthem I didn’t realize was missing from my life until it hit my eardums. Throughout the song frontman Pier Danio Forni essentially walks through the ways that anxiety can take a toll on your life. The chorus is a bit of a snapshot of the frantic thoughts that swirl through an anxious mind. Ironically enough I find repetitiveness of the chorus to be really relaxing. Dis why I fux with Husky Loops. Clever clever lads.

“Everyone Having Fun Fun Fun But Me” is our second taste from their debut LP, I Can’t Even Speak English, which will be out on August 14th courtesy of Fighting Ourselves / 30th Century Records. The album title is obvi a nice little chuckle at their own expense, given that the now London based band grew up in Italy. Tracklisting and artwork for the album is below. Gonna be honest, REALLY CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT A SONG CALLED “FUCK ME NATURALLY” SOUNDS LIKE.

Husky Loops at Elsewhere (zone one) on 3/5/2019

Back in November I casually evangelized the wonders of London trio Husky Loops courtesy of some diSKOAver weekly loving. Since then some cool shit has happened for the fellas. On Friday the band has released a new offering unto us, “Let Go For Nothing”, a first taste of their forthcoming debut full-length Music That Makes the World Better, which is due out this summer. The piano-forward track showcases a softer side to the band than we’ve previously seen, all the while maintaining their experimental sound.

Earlier in the week the band also made their North American debut appearance at Elsewhere on Tuesday, which yours truly was in attendance and therefore can confirm for the rest of y’all that these dudes fucking slap. Their energy is insanely infectious. It was sort of impossible for anyone to sit still for too long.

In summary, if you don’t like Husky Loops then you’re dead wrong.

I’m not sorry, these are the rules.

If you happen to be heading to SXSW next week (unlike me who will be attending couch by couch west), please do yourself a favor and make it a point to go see these guys. You absolutely won’t be disappointed.

Also buy them some BBQ and margaritas on my behalf.
