Having been hailed Annie Mac’sHottest RecordIn The World on her BBC Radio 1 show this evening (30th July), Husky Loops release their brand new single ‘I Think You’re Wonderful’ through Fighting Ourselves / 30th Century Records. It’s their catchiest track to date, but with all the unique Husky Loops flavouring we’ve come to expect.
Speaking about the new single frontman and producer Danio says “I Think You’re Wonderful” is a song about universal love, about forgiveness, about empathy, about resilience. I want people to listen to this one and feel encouraged to tell someone they care about that they’re wonderful. We have to be strong and love each other; in 2019 a lot of negative messages are being sold to us. The current political landscape worldwide is scary and our governments are promoting fear. I want our fans to listen to this song and feel empowered, happy, and full of spirit. Human beings are hard-wired to notice and remember negative news and events, but we need to have hope, we have to fight to stay happy and sane.”
‘I Think You’re Wonderful’ is taken from Husky Loops debut album ‘I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH’ which is set for release on September 6th and follows on from their most recent single ‘Everyone Is Having Fun Fun Fun But Me’.
The album was produced by the band at Eastcote Studios in Kensal Road and is mixed by Spoon’s drummer and sound man, Jim Eno. The title ‘I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH’ is a tongue-in-cheek nod to their continental roots in divisive times. Pre-order here – https://orcd.co/icantevenspeakenglish
To celebrate the album release the band will play a very special pre album release party at Rye Wax (Peckham, London) on 15th August. The band playing the record in its entirety with guest appearances from Ten Dixon, SBK, MEI plus many more. Free entry. Doors at 8.30pm.
The album’s artwork, much like everything Husky Loops do, breaks the mold. Completely customisable and the first of its kind (to our knowledge), each album (vinyl, CD and digital) will come with a pen (physical or digital) to allow fans to interpret what the title means to them and create their own bespoke album cover.
Speaking about the concept behind it frontman and producer Danio explains, “We wanted to do something that could expand the concept of album artwork. We didn’t like the idea of just sticking to a single image, as the album is so diverse, and we wanted to really find a way to make our fans interact. So we started thinking of a customisable artwork, and straight away the marker idea came up. It fits the title, and it really gives everyone an opportunity to be creative. We wanted our debut album to be something that people could fully physically experience.”
The London trio, by way of Bologna, Italy recently made their US live debut, including multiple appearances at SXSW. In support of the album release they will head out on a UK and European headline tour in October 2019, including several dates at Bermondsey Social Club in London.
