Husky Free the Beasts in 'Tidal Wave' - Premiere.
Husky frontman [who's name is, indeed...] Husky Gawenda and keyboardist
Gideon Preiss are cousins who grew up together in Australia and
discovered a shared love of music. The young quartet that makes up
Husky have disparate tastes, but
a shared passion for classic sounds, rich harmonies and artful
songwriting: qualities that have become a staple of a Sub Pop roster
that boasts Fleet Foxes and The Head and the Heart among its latest
Forever So was borne of a true DIY aesthetic,
recorded in every inch of a small backyard cabin that had to have
electricity siphoned to it from the main house, the album's inauspicious
beginnings were trumped by first single and late-addition "History's
Door" winning a nation-wide contest in Australia
that saw the song become an enormous hit for the then unsigned band.
Remixed in Los Angeles by Noah Georgeson [Devandra Banhart, Joanna
Newsom, the Strokes], the final result is a fully-realized long-player
that impresses from start to finish. See Husky's videos
from the Bing Lounge.
