London based, Italian band Husky Loops today release the digitally hand-drawn video for their new single ‘I Think You’re Wonderful’.
The band asked friends, fans and strangers to draw what they felt whilst listening to the song for the first time. It was created solely on the iPad pro’s Procreate App. Here’s the resulting video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LRSEnOuKfY
Speaking about the video, Husky Loops drummer and the video director Pietro Garrone says “Our new video was created by a bunch of genuinely great moments of people (fans, friends and strangers) listening to the track for the first time, and that makes it a piece we are proud of. Most people think they can’t draw, when really all it takes to make a meaningful drawing is imagination and daring to do it. There is so little stopping you from doing seemingly small things that can have such a positive impact. The whole album I Can’t Even Speak English is about inviting action, participation – and if our art can be a blank sleeve for our fans to fill, so be it.”
‘I Think You’re Wonderful’ is out now through Fighting Ourselves / 30th Century Records and is taken from Husky Loops debut album ‘I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH’ which is set for release on September 6th. It’s Husky Loops catchiest track to date, but with all the unique Husky Loops flavouring we’ve come to expect.
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) on15th 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.
