Neu Pick: Husky Loops bring fireworks to ‘Fighting Myself’ single

Husky Loops bring fireworks to ‘Fighting Myself’ single

London-based trio’s dark, sludge-infested indie is a bolt out the blue.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Husky Loops.

Bologna-formed, London-based trio Husky Loops have been fifteen years in the making. Danio (vocals & guitar), Pietro (drums & samples) and Tommaso (bass) first met way back. But while studying music at the Royal College of Art, they formed the foundations for their frazzled, tightly-wound rock.

On ‘Fighting Myself’, the group wreak havoc while retaining perfect control. Every stab of guitar is there for a reason, right through to the song’s rancid, feedback-stained closing section. Like the most wound-up, frustrated moments on Preoccupations’ latest album, they mimic the dread and the fear of anxiety, the unstoppable rush of something out of your control.

It’s a startling introduction, and it’s today’s Neu Pick. Stream Husky Loops’ new track below and catch them at the following shows:

15 London, The Finsbury
31 London, Bush Hall

24 London, Kamio (TGE First Fifty, DIY Presents)
