Indie folk duo Husky, from Melbourne, Australia, are currently touring nationally in support of their latest album, Punchbuzz, which released on June 2. You can hear it on Spotify below or check out the video for the album’s lead single “Ghost”:
Husky, comprised of cousins Husky Gawenda and Gideon Preiss, have previously released two albums, 2011’s Forever So and 2014’s Rucker’s Hill, with influences ranging from Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan to The National and Tame Impala. Gawenda also told the Australian Jewish News that the new album was creatively affected by his and Preiss’ time living in Berlin in 2015, during which they visited the city’s Jewish Museum and Holocaust memorial.
Outside of Husky, Gawenda and Preiss perform in the Yiddish folk group The Bashevis Singers with Gawenda’s sister Evie. They performed at the Shir Madness Jewish Music Festival in Sydney last year and recently released a self-titled album.
