Husky’s lead vocalist, Husky Gawenda has colluded with fellow Melbournites to harness their musical talents into the band’s forthcoming album, Forever So.
The compilation is primarily composed of indie and folk inspired melodies that tranquilise the senses. The debut single, ‘History’s Door’ is characterised by fragile vocals, raw acoustic and keyboard. It was well received on Triple J and has been quickly followed up with the new celestial single, ‘Dark Sea’. I immediately identified with the subtle harmonisations, escalating tempo and emotionally intensifying tune of this release. I speculate that airplay and exposure of Forever So will irrevocably generate enthusiasm amongst the public.
Triple J Unearthed was perhaps the synergist behind the group’s growing success and instigated their supporting position for Jinja Safari and Noah and the Whale during their recent national tours. The boys confined themselves to the makeshift studio in one of their backyards for recording purposes. They recently returned from the US, where they mixed with Noah Georgeson, (notably associated with the likes of Devendra Banhart and The Strokes). Evidently, Husky is rapidly ascending the independent Australian music scene.
Forever So is out Friday 21 October through Liberation Music. Get involved.
