Husky Loops is the U.K. rock-meets-electronic trio redefining what it means to be called a rock band. Originally meeting seven years ago in Italy, members Danio Forni (vocals and guitar), Pietro Garrone (drums), and Tommaso Medica (bass) found themselves bound together after wishing to resuscitate themselves creatively in London. Now the band has seen the circle come fully around, releasing their debut project, I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH.
Aptly injecting their mold-breaking sound, Husky Loops latest project sees a multifaceted infusion of traditional rock instrumentation and electronically-based production, whereby looped samples, heavily distorted auto-tune, and club-ready basses have been placed within the album. In many senses, Husky Loops takes on where 1980s Manchester (Madchester) left off — refining the boundary-less approach to sound that sees everything from hip-hop to post-punk to dance music being thrown into the mix.
In a recent statement via The Fader, the band shared that the “debut album is a record about breaking the rules, being yourself and involving people in the creative process. We can all speak English but we’re so bad at communicating with each other and this record really aims to make everyone more involved,” aptly reiterating the eclectic combination of sounds employed throughout I CAN’T SPEAK ENGLISH.

‘I CAN’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH’ IS OUT NOW. The artwork is totally blank and there for you to be creative and customise. We gave up on a space to write the credits or any type of explanations… So here goes: This is an album the way we see the “album” in 2019. It’s 34 minutes long. Created for people with a short attention span, like us. It introduces you to some of our dearest friends through Whatsapp-voice notes, thank you @lilmoonpet for the best intro of all time. It has one feature only, @mothermary999 (she is the best, btw.) Every song contains every element and characteristic of the Husky Loops sound. It’s the amalgamation of everything we created so far as a band. It was fully produced/engineered by Danio, with some help from Clem at @eastcotestudios where the album was recorded. @fredagainagainagainagainagain came to improve “Everyone’s Having Fun Fun Fun But Me” tho. Thanks mate you’re so fucking talented. @joyanonymous came to emotionally improve the ting with some of his magic powers too. Thank you, we don’t know what we’d do without you. “The Reasonable Thing” was co-written with @1am_mei (she is also the best). It was mixed by @jimenoacid who isn’t just the drummer in one of the coolest band ever but also a true Diamond Geezer who made this record sound like a total bomb. A true sick mixing engineer with the best studio ever. “A Little Something” was recorded (in its entirety) at his studio in Austin, in 1 day. Thank you @stefanolsdal and @eliotjamesmusic James for letting your kids sing the chorus of “The Enemy Is Yourself”. Thanks @quiteaniceboy for throwing the best social moments in the studio, and thank u @oscarscheller for helping record the fucking weird “rap” in “Slippin’”. Huge thanks to @clarebritt you believed in this since day 1 and listened to every single demo. Thank you @primary_talent_international you believed in this since day 1. Mega thanks to the @the_orchard_ who are crazy enough to let us print a thousand copies of a blank canvas with a marker attached to it. You believed in us since day 1 too. Thank you @prolificamanagement . And last, thank u @brianwilsonlive none of this would have happened without you. Love you all.
