Introducing the Indie Italians Husky Loops. The London-based three-piece rock band, who produce all their own tunes, are passionate about art and champion originality above conformity. It’s easy to see why The Great Escape new music festival have come calling.
Danio (vocals & guitar), Pietro (drums & samples) and Tommaso (bass) are all from Bologne in Italy, they formed Husky Loops after emigrating to London where they began studying music at the Royal College of Art. They are signed to the Tiny Factory record label, AKA the Tiny Factory Collective which is basically a group of friends who endeavour to make music and art projects better by working together with an emphasis on quality. They’ve nailed it with the 2016 single “DEAD” it’s a brilliantly engrossing Indie Rock tune with a frantic genre-crossing outro. Check out the trippy video below:
The band are not fans of the current state of the music industry and the Rock’n’Roll scene, they see themselves as risk takers within this realm striving to produce varied output through an original sound. Husky Loops haven’t really got on board with the traditional way a new band markets themselves, this is their Facebook bio:
“This is a long phrase about our sound full of evocative but meaningless adjectives. This is the sentence that obscurely refers to some suffered songwriting and to some heroic performances we might or might not have actually performed. This is the part in which we name random bands hoping to seem cool just by association. This is the final sentence in which we beg you to listen to us because we crave to be heard to confirm our insecurities, covered with a layer of worn out we-don’t-care attitude.”
Not ideal for researching and compiling informative content to present to you, the intrigued new music lover, but a refreshing twist on the normal approach nonetheless. Frankly, we don’t care how a band markets themselves as long as they’re good and the two songs Husky Loops have available online certainly fit the bill. Get your ears on “Fighting Myself” below:
