Husky Loops are London’s next gripping new rock band, a sound that’s hard to pin down, even harder to pigeonhole.

Described as having a ‘sleazy, hot-footed noise’ where sharp, swerving riffs and unconventional arrangements are forged into strange shapes with an unorthodox delivery, Danio, Pietro and Tom first met at school in Bologna. Fast forward 15 years to a relocation to London to study at music college and the Royal College of Art, they put the finishing touches to their ultimate creation Husky Loops just over a year ago.

Since putting their debut track ‘Dead’ online at the start of 2016 they’ve already caught the attention of the very fine ears of Noisey, DIY, London in Stereo, The Line Of Best Fit, Huw Stephens, Apple Music, Music Week and Amazing Radio. The band have also supported the likes of Sunflower Bean and Yak.

Plus support from HVMM

From the West Midlands rises the heavy-laced rock of HVMM. When was the last time you went to a gig and felt that teenage combination of fear and excitement? Picture a sepia-lit stage with four smartly garbed musicians staring out steely eyed. Collarless cotton, cravats, smoked chrome glinting on resting Fenders: the scene feels theatrical, anachronistic, subversive.
