Italian-born, London-based trio Husky Loops recently announced the details of their debut album, I Can’t Even Speak English out on August 16th on Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records. Featuring contributions from Fred Gibson (Charli XCX, Plan B), their new single “Everyone Is Having Fun Fun Fun But Me” pairs pumping trip-hop beats, icy, electro vocals and lush atmospherics for the perfect grooving, post-night-out downer. It’s for the early hours of the morning when you’re gazing out the window, still awake after a night that was supposed to be life-affirming, but instead felt stale.

Watch our new video for ‘Everyone’s Having Fun Fun Fun But Me’ right now. Shot in Peckham (London) and taken from our debut album I Can’t Even Speak English.

This is a long phrase about our sound full of evocative but meaningless adjectives. This is the sentence that obscurely refers to some suffered songwriting and to some heroic performances we might or might not have actually performed. This is the part in which we name random bands hoping to seem cool just by association. This it the final sentence in which we beg you to listen to us because we crave to be heard to confirm our insecurities, covered with a layer of worn out we-don’t-care attitude.

The Babe Rainbow was formed in the summer of 2014 by Angus Dowling and Jack Laughlan Crowther in the coastal surf town of Rainbow Bay, Australia. Students of English, lovers of permaculture, riders of waves – the pair also found common ground in the 60’s music like The Incredible String Band and Swing Mademoiselles. Their early singles attracted the attenion of Flightless Records who went on to release their breakout single Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest. The band, which now includes Lucas Mariani and Jessi Dunbar, caught the attenion of US record producer, artist and now label owner Danger Mouse who signed them to his 30th Century Records. The album was produced by Stu Mackenzie (King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard).

They come loosely from the same staple as King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and are similarly enamoured of the less murky side of 60’s psychedelia. Their album, Double Rainbow epitomises the summer vibe with its mellifluous harmonies, second-gear beat architecture and bright acoustics. Double Rainbow has some influences from the 60’s such as The Beatles and Grateful Dead, as you’ll read elsewhere, but what it really reminded me of was J.J Cale’sNaturally. Listen to ‘Darby and Joan’ and tell me you don’t hear ‘Call Me the Breeze’. Not only the song structure but J.J Cale’s easy swagger and insouciance. Front porch therapy. Replete with tropical aromas, gentle breezes and cool temperament.

‘Eureka’ clamours successfully for that vibe as well, but ventures more into sunset party territory with accentuated wah-wah and a drummer riding the cymbals with free abandon. The album starts out with a song, ‘The Magician’, so assured, so beautifully written, it’s hard to believe these guys have been only hanging together for a year and a half. Probably longer as surfing mates if the truth be known.
