Following various festival appearances over the summer including Reading & Leeds and Liverpool Sound City, the London-Italian four-piece Husky Loops are back with '20 Blanks', another release that flags their refusal to be pigeonholed. 

Speaking ahead of the single's release, the band explain "We are emphasising the importance of songwriting and lyrics and '20 Blanks' represents the need of that today. It also represents some young people working in the music industry which is a great thing, but who come to gigs and act in the bridge of 20 Blanks, we're trying get them to loosen up and move their bodies! And so should you. Dance! Make an impact. All of you can be great."

Placing this message over grooving guitar riffs, infectious percussion and jaunty harmonies frontman Pier Danio Forni sings of "wasting time in disguise", in reference to young music journalists who let the facade of industry pretence hang over their ability to inject themselves into their live shows, and simply, have fun. He explains: "I was singing a melody in my head for a while that reminded me of Michael Jackson and Beyoncè's first era, and I always wanted to write music like that for Husky Loops. Me and MEI met and had this idea of writing an anthemic, joyful protest against the music industry."

After signing to 30th Century records, run by Danger Mouse, the trio is set to release their EP Spool on the 19th of October. Check out their new video for the track below.
