Published Apr 17, 2012Melbourne, Australia-based Husky delivered their debut disc Forever So in their mother country last fall, but the album's dark indie pop tunes will get a second wind when Sub Pop reissues the set worldwide. As previously reported, the album arrives in North America on July 10 (May 28 in the UK and Europe), and Husky will be sporting their tunes on some newly announced dates here in Canada and the U.S.
For the tour, the quartet will be playing a couple of gigs out in Europe before linking up with a few different Sub Pop acts in North America. First up on our continent is a handful of shows with folkies the Head and the Heart, while the back end of the trip, which brings them to Vancouver's Media Club on July 21, pairs the act with Shearwater.
Formed by cousins Husky Gawenda (vocals) and Gideon Preiss (keyboards), Husky have been performing together since 2008. A press release for Forever So says the LP distills the sounds of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Bob Dylan, the Doors, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and the Beach Boys into something new.
You can check that sound out for yourself via album track "The Woods" in the music video down below. Also, at the bottom of the page you can grab "History's Door" in the widget.
