1.Your Profile

Husky sounds like fire and snow, a suburban childhood summer, a deserted train station in the middle of the night, a dream you once had but can’t really remember. We like to play music, listen to vinyl, drink scotch and go for winter evening jogs. In a fan, we look for open ears and open hearts (tall, dark and handsome preferably). No, we’re not very fussy, just stoked when people dig what we do.

2.Keeping Busy

We’ve been recording and mixing our new album and rehearsing for the tour we’re about to begin, for the release of our new single ‘I’m Not Coming Back’. I’ve also been watching True Detective, trying to learn the fine art of carpentry, listening to Radiolab podcasts, working on my low impact running technique and perfecting the art of a good stir fry. We’ll release our new album in the spring and then tour extensively around Australia for that. Looking forward to some spring/summer festivals too.

3.Best Gig Ever

We played Panama Festival in the Lone Star Valley, Tasmania at the beginning of the year. It was a stage in this enchanted forest, middle of the night, everyone singing along. Then we watched Charles Bradley and partied until dawn.

4.Current Playlist

My great aunty gave me a 1960s record player/stereo so I’ve been listening to a lot of old records – Bert Jansch, Fairport Convention, Frank Sinatra, Rachmaninov. Plus some more recent stuff like Father John Misty and Big Scary. The last great gig I went to was The National at Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Great live band, they put on an awesome show.

5.Your Ultimate Rider

Our usual rider is not all that interesting. Some spirits, some wine, some coconut water, an assortment of herbal teas. Dream rider would include a piano, a massage therapist, a juicer and a Rubik’s Cube.
