Australian quartet Husky has earned critical acclaim for their captivating songs around the world. To celebrate the release of the band’s debut album ‘Forever So’ internationally through Sub Pop, the band is currently touring worldwide, stopping by at Joe’s Pub in New York. “Their live craft is so assured that it lands in the heady realm of being downright enchanting" (shout4music.com).
Husky's album, 'Forever So', is a full-realized, long-playing album that holds up start-to-finish, from catchy opener "Tidal Wave," with its hum-along harmonies and surprise psychedelic midsection, to the understated, intertwined brass parts that conclude "Farewell (in 3 Parts)." In the syncopated rhythms of "Hundred Dollar Suit" or the reverberating piano strings and laid back bass that underpin "The Woods," you can sense fingers moving over instruments and lungs giving breath to voices, the unfolding of ephemeral ideas into fresh yet fully-realized songs taking forth before your very ears.
