“Their perfect blend of earnestness/catchiness demanded immediate attention. Now on their third album Punchbuzz, Husky are no less earnest or catchy, but they have (ahem) punched up their signature indie folk sound.” KCRW

…builds on Husky’s folk origins but expands their palette into more atmospheric realms.” – Relix

Everything Husky put their name against feels incredibly assured.” – Clash Music

…a spindly indie rock band who take more cues from Pinback and The National than they do Crosby, Stills, Nash, or Young.FLOOD Magazine

Husky’s rich folk-rock sound is, at its core, a delicate and complex interplay between the two musicians.” –NPR’s Opb Music

“…top-notch indie folk…” – Entertainment Weekly

The finger-picked acoustic guitars and lofty harmonies all emulate an Appalachian aesthetic.” –Consequence of Sound

May 31, 2017 Australian, indie folk duo, Husky are currently streaming an exclusively first listen of their new album, Punchbuzz, to be released on June 2nd on Nevado Music. CLICK HERE to listen exclusively on Relix.Husky Gawenda says, “On Punchbuzz, the pace and overall feel is different to our previous work. We experimented with new sounds, new rhythms. I think in the past we played folk music because we had made this decision somewhere along the line that we were a folk band and we have always loved folk music. But this time around, we changed things up. We found a new kind of freedom. And with that came new territory and a new adventure for the band.”

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.

In support of the new album, the band will be doing a tour in Australia and Europe. USA dates to be announced soon. See tour dates below.

Husky 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.
