Australian, indie folk duo, Husky has announced their new album, Punchbuzz, to be released on June 2nd on Nevado Music. Today, Husky has unveiled their new single, “Ghost.” CLICK HERE to listen exclusively on Clash Music.
Husky says, “‘Ghost’ is about a process of coming to terms with this half asleep, half awake, somewhere between the haunted past and the sunlit possibility of tomorrow, mid-air, mid-dream state. Put simply, I was searching for a way to get free. Free of the past. Free of the future. Free of myself. Whatever that means.”
Huksy is comprised of Husky Gawenda and Gideon Preiss. When the duo returned to the familiar sites and sounds of Melbourne the singer-songwriter sought sanctuary at The Westbury Hotel where “Ghost” and the album Punchbuzz were born. Shaped by their recent experiences, Punchbuzz finds Husky tapping into something that hadn’t previously come to the fore on their debut album Forever So or much-loved follow-up Ruckers Hill.
Produced and mixed by Matt Redlich (The Trouble with Templeton, Emma Louise) and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Shins, The Kills, Delta Spirit), Punchbuzz is a collection of Husky signature folk sound with streamlined indie rock that lopes ahead with widescreen atmosphere, dark lyrics, and newly muscled melodies. Sharp, lean, and driving, the album more than lives up to the dynamic imperative of its title.
