Aussie duo Husky are headed straight towards their third record, dropping the clip for their first single after almost an entire year of sonic and visual silence.
‘Late Night Store‘, released earlier this month, is the first glimpse of the pair’s forthcoming album and is loaded with new sounds and a wanderer’s spirit. The accompanying music video is a lo-fi work that captures the essence of an endless adventure through fireworks, stars, dance scenes and road signs.
Directed by Lucy McCallum, the clip emphasises the song’s theme of disconnection between inner and outer experience. On the hazy and hypnotic work McCallum says, “I wanted to capture this feeling of disassociation by compiling found archival footage that was intimate and nostalgic with images that were more grandiose and universal.”
The poetic single put together by Husky Gawenda (lead vocals, guitar) and Gideon Preiss (keys, vocals) came about “through lots of drinking and confusion and heartache and longing and ecstasy – all in the one night.”
Husky are touring Australia in December, the first time since 2014. To catch some unheard and unreleased tracks, get down to one of the shows.
