‘Featured Artist,’ Husky, “History’s Door”

March 31st, 2012  |  by Nels Thoreson   |  Published in Songs of the Day

Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Melbourne, Australia’s own, Husky, with  their song, “History’s Door,” off their debut album, Forever So, through Liberation Music and Sub Pop Records.  The four-piece band includes frontman, Husky Gawenda (vocals, guitar), Gideon Preiss (vocals, keyboard), Evan Tweedie (vocals, bass), and Luke Collins on drums and percussion.

The album was made in a bungalow in the back of Gawenda’s house, after he and Preiss got together as much recording equipment they could.  After a couple months of recording, they brought their songs to Los Angeles to the guidance of Noah Georgeson (Devandra Banhart, Joanna Newsom and The Strokes), to the House of Blues Studios, where the album was mixed.  The end result is the incredible album, Forever So.

Husky is currently on tour, and will play Sunday, April 1st, at the  West Coast Blues ‘N’ Roots Festival.  They then head back to Australia for a series of shows, take off to United Kingdom and Germany, and then are back in the US in May and June to support The Head and the Heart.  Be sure to catch a live show.

These words find their place in the song, “History’s Door,”

“Two hearts burning
On a hillside turning
Round the blazing sun
Fever burning
In her head that’s turning
Round the things she’s done
“Free your heart
That is the hardest part”,
He says, “Your heart won’t lie.”

Find your hope forget your home
Heed that feeling in your bones
For your heart knows you’ll never win
Until you’re free from him

Don’t look back
There is no use in wondering
Just how or why
If you leave now
You might just make it home
Before the morning light
Tired and poor
You kneel at history’s door
Tonight

Find your hope forget your home
Heed that feeling in your bones
For your heart knows you’ll never win
Until you’re free from him…”
