Husky - The Woods
Artist HuskySong title The Woods
Year 2012Genre(s) Alternative
Husky's new single, The Woods, is taken from their debut album, Forever So, which will be released on May 12th, 2012. Husky are currently touring Europe but will perform at the Sub Pop Showcase at SXSW on March 16th, 2012. They will tour Australia in April and are expected to tour the UK in May.
The video for The Woods was directed by Brendan Cook and Darryn Rogers. The concept was thought up by Ariella Gery and sees Husky standing on a cliff top, looking at a distant city. Roots and leaves start sprouting from their hands and feet and before long, they have turned into trees. Meanwhile, the city becomes overgrown by spreading foliage.
Husky Gawenda (vox, guitar); Gideon Preiss (keys, vox); Evan Tweedie (bass, vox) and Luke Collins (drums) comprise Husky, who won the Australian talent show Triple J Unearthed. They are also the first Australian band to sign to Sub Pop Records. Forever So was released in 2011 in their native country and it received critical acclaim.
