Husky Loops arrive in London, students of music, 15 years after the members of the three piece first met at school in Bologna, Italy. Uncompromisingly experimental for a three piece guitar band, they're one of the capital's most exciting emerging artists, and it's only a matter of time before you fall as in love with them as me. A mix of outta control guitars, rumbling basslines and invasive sampling, they create what are essentially panic attacks you can dance to. Not sound like a suitable description to you? Listen to their latest track below, and you'll agree with me 100%.
Their latest track, Fighting Myself, is a prime example of some of the most interesting modern post-punk you'll ever hear. Starting with an upbeat, danceable bassline, squalls of feedback and samples of raw, gritty noise just bring it into a whole new world altogether. The breakdown, the descent into chaos, leaves you - the dazzled listener - in complete disarray, as the band so seamlessly blend threatening electronic noises with the kinda clean shaven post-punk we're used to hearing from Ought or Krill.
