Friday Nights at NGV: Interview with Husky

We interviewed Husky who will be headlining NGV Friday Nights at NGV International on 15 July 2016.

Describe your sound in 5 words or less?
A slow misty moonlight walk

If your music was an artwork what would it look like?
Like the front cover of our album, Ruckers Hill, painted by Tunni Kraus, an amazing local artist.

What’s your favourite gig you have played to date?
Our last show at Womadelaide was magical. Sunset, surrounded by trees and good people. Our last show is always my favourite.

What inspires/influences your music the most?
Other music, books, poetry, films and probably most of all, everyday life – it’s pretty crazy.

What song do you wish you wrote?
McCarthur Park

What part of making music excites you the most?
Writing songs. When it works, it’s the best feeling in the world.

What can someone expect from your live show?
Apparently we always look good. Hopefully we’ll sound great too.

Tell us about the last song or album you created?
Well the last album we released was Ruckers Hill. But we’re working on our new album, album #3, and it’s really different to our previous work.

Degas: A New Vision showcases works by Edgar Degas that reveal how the artist observed the world around him. How do you feel your music reflects life today?
I think our music reflects our lives and I guess our lives reflect what’s going on for other people in the world today, to some extent. But the reflection is not something we think about whilst making music. It is there for others to see in the way they choose to see it.

What are you working on now?
A new record. We’ve written it. We’re about to start recording now. We’re really excited about the new songs.
