HUSKY LOOPS share new video 'Tempo'!

Debut EP out now via Alcopop Records! UK tour dates announced!

With their debut EP out now via Alcopop Records, London-based trio Husky Loops are sharing their new video for standout track 'Tempo'. The band are set to play Live at Leeds, Dot to Dot, The Great Escape and various other UK shows this May, including a London show at The Shacklewell Arms on May 6th. 

Speaking about the video, director Tom Ringsby & Pietro of the band said "We wanted to work with the theme of mortality and the universality of it: how we are all living under the ticking clock. In our research we found Chronophobia, the clinical term for a fear of time. This informed all choices from script, casting, locations and design.
 
The dramatic film techniques and imagery, drawn from pop thriller and horror cinema, make the pill easier to digest, while emphasising the mounting pressure building at the back of our heads.
 
They say the key to contentment is to live in the present, but right now’s a pretty fucked up place to be."

HUSKY LOOPS

 New single 'Tempo'. Debut EP due April 7th via Alcopop Records! Tour dates announced incl/ The Kills support in Europe!

 

 

Ahead of their debut EP release on April 7th via Alcopop Records, Italian-born, now London-based trio Husky Loops are sharing a new slice of their riff-heavy, art-rock sounds with new single 'Tempo'. 

Offering some insight behind the new single, the band said "'Tempo' is a song about running out of excuses and time, recorded live to capture the bands' live energy. The inexorable flow of life was of inspiration to compose a track which is defined by repetition and awkward patterns, in which groove is the key.”

 

Made up of Danio (vocals & guitar), Pietro (drums & samples) and Tommaso (bass), Husky Loops first met at school in Bologna, Italy. Fast forward fifteen years to a relocation to London to study at music college and the Royal College of Art, they joined forces to form their ultimate creation, which started just over two years ago. Since putting their debut track ‘Dead’ online at the start of 2016 they immediately gained interest and attention for their unorthodox take on modern rock music, which was followed by their last single 'Fighting Myself' late in 2016. 

Drawing personal inspirations from everything from rock to hip-hop, naming influences all the way from Black Sabbath to Aphex Twin to D'Angelo, the band's forthcoming self-titled EP reflects the hard work and endless jamming sessions the three have participated in over the past 12 months.Explaining how they came to choose the name Husky Loops, the band explained “it means rough loops: it stems from our fascination with repetition, playing loops from a rock perspective”. They combined various words, which they thought suited them best, landing on Husky Loops - a homage to their fresh, DIY take on rich, yet simultaneously raw riffs. 

With hugely successful tour supports with Sunflower Bean, Yak & Estrons, Husky Loops have gained a lot of attention for their ferocious live show and have recently been announced to The Kills in Europe and will also play The Great Escape Festival this May. 

'Husky Loops' EP will be available April 7th via Alcopop Records. The vinyl includes a bonus track 'Huskyesque', with a limited run of only 300. This is printed on reverse board and includes two double sided posters.

HUSKY LOOPS announce debut self-titled EP & share new video 'Fighting Myself'.

EP out April 7th via Alcopop Records! UK tour dates announced! 

London-based art-rock trio Husky Loops have signed to Alcopop Records and announced their debut self-titled EP, due April 7th. The band are sharing a new video for their latest single 'Fighting Myself'.

Directed by Tom Ringsby, the dark, DIY visuals match Husky Loops sludgy, incongruous indie perfectly. In the words of the director "Husky Loops are my favourite new band. I just had to document them right now, before they were everybody’s."

Made up of Danio (vocals & guitar), Pietro (drums & samples) and Tommaso (bass), Husky Loops first met at school in Bologna, Italy. Fast forward fifteen years to a relocation to London to study at music college and the Royal College of Art, they joined forces to form their ultimate creation, which started just over just over two years ago. Since putting their debut track ‘Dead’ online at the start of 2016 they immediately gained interest and attention for their unorthodox take on modern rock music, which was followed by their last single 'Fighting Myself' late in 2016. 


Drawing personal inspirations from everything from rock to hip-hop, naming influences all the way from Black Sabbath to Aphex Twin to D'Angelo, the band's forthcoming self-titled EP reflects the hard work and endless jamming sessions the three have participated in over the past 12 months. Explaining how they came to choose the name Husky Loops, the band explained "we wanted to choose a name that no one else had". They deliberated combining various words, which they though suited them best, landing on Husky Loops - a homage to their fresh, DIY take on rich, yet simultaneously raw riffs. 

With hugely successful tour supports with Sunflower Bean and Yak, Husky Loops have gained a lot of attention for their ferocious live show and have recently been announced to support Estrons on their UK tour this February and will also selected as one of The Great Escape Festival's First 50, to play this May. All dates below. 

'Husky Loops' EP will be available April 7th via Alcopop Records. The vinyl includes a bonus track 'Huskyesque', with a limited run of only 300, and includes 3 folded art prints.
