Husky Loops, who release their self-titled debut EP on 7 April, will be supporting The Kills in Europe this summer, playing The Great Escape Festival in May, and performing a hometown show at Lion Records on 13 April.
Now based in London, the band who first met at school in Bologna, Italy more than 15 years ago, have also shared another song from the upcoming release: ‘Tempo’.
“‘Tempo’ is a song about running out of excuses and time, recorded live to capture the band’s 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,” say the group, singer/guitarist Danio, drummer Pietro, and bassist Tommaso.
The new track follows their debut track, ‘Dead’, which dropped early last year, and the single ‘Fighting Myself’, released late in 2016.
“‘Fighting Myself’ is about struggle and everyday hindrance that leads to an outburst of anxiety and energy sonically represented by the final part of the song,” the band revealed at the time.
Since the group members relocated to London to study at music college and the Royal College of Art a couple of years ago, they’ve been working hard on the upcoming EP (drawing on influences as diverse as Black Sabbath, Aphex Twin, and D’Angelo) and supported the likes of Sunflower Bean, Yak, and Estrons on tour.
As for their name, “it means rough loops: it stems from our fascination with repetition, playing loops from a rock perspective”.
