Influences: Husky Loops

For the inaugural Hot Fuzz event this October, Fuzzy Logic invite Husky Loops to headline along with HAUS in support.

The Italian boys based in London, Danio, Pietro & Tommaso may come across as suave and sophisticated on the surface, but their sound is loud & brash with nods to post-punk in their heavy bass lines. They’ve supported the likes of Sunflower Bean & YAK and now, after huge support from Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) & John Kennedy (Radio X), the band are ready to step out on their own with huge festival dates including Latitude, Blue Dot, Y Not, Reading & Leeds followed by a headline UK tour.

We asked the boys about some of the tracks that formed the rungs on the ladder of their musical upbringing.
