With the release of their new album Punchbuzz a little over a month away, Husky today bring news of a national tour to fans and share the visionary video for their current single ’Ghost’ which premiered overnight via KCRW in the US.
‘Ghost’ has enjoyed a warm welcome into the world so far. It was premiered via triple j’s Veronica and Lewis along with Clash Music in the UK, and has since received airplay at triple j and double j, amongst a host of additions to Apple Music and Spotify playlists. The rhythmic, driving song sets the scene for Husky’s third album Punchbuzz, out June 2. ‘Ghost’ follows popular first single ‘Late Night Store’ which has amassed just under 2.5 million streams on Spotify since its release last year as well as additions a number of notable playlists.
Shaped by the duo’s recent experiences, Punchbuzz sees the band swapping their signature folk sound for streamlined indie rock that lopes ahead with widescreen atmosphere, dark lyrics, and newly muscled melodies. Sharp, lean, and driving, the album more than lives up to the dynamic imperative of its title.
The Punchbuzz tour will see Husky perform in full band mode, taking the album’s multi-layered sounds to audiences in metro and regional locations nation-wide. The band’s smaller, east-coast run of shows at the tail end of 2017 all sold-out. Supporting Husky on the run will be Mackay based singer/ songwriter and triple J Unearthed alumni Tia Gostelow and up-and-coming Sydney based band Hot Spoke. Local songwriter Teischa will open for the band in WA. Tickets are on-sale now.
