Husky Gawenda (vox, guitar), Gideon Preiss (keys, vox), Evan Tweedie (bass, vox) and Luke Collins (drums) make up Melbourne-based Husky, the first-ever Australian band to be signed to Sub Pop Records. Following the Australian release of their 2011 debut album, Forever So, Husky has decided to take their critically acclaimed music to the rest of the world with a July 10th release date.
“Sub Pop is enamored with the Melbourne quartet, Husky,” says President of Sub Pop Jonathan Poneman. “The band’s strength rests in its infectious, evocative songs and stirring live performances.”
Husky is hitting the international touring circuit throughout February and March. Following national appearances at Laneway Festival, the band will tour alongside German duo BOY throughout Germany and then perform at SXSW in Austin, Texas, Canadian Music Week and in New York City and LA.

What People Are Saying About Husky:
“Forever So is breathtaking in its ambition, a shimmering fog of kaleidoscopic storytelling, each a song a Nick Drake-esque fairytale delivered with full indie-orhestration.” **** [Band to Watch] – Rolling Stone
“With indie folks songs that are totally accessible and sweet while for the most part avoiding being predictable or twee, there is certainly enough about Forever So to suggest that everything is in place for Husky to make an impact. Don’t be surprised if 2012 is a big year for this likeable quartet.” – Drum
