With their debut EP out now via Alcopop Records, London-based trio Husky Loops have shared their new video for 'Tempo'.
On the video, director Tom Ringsby & Pietro of the band said "We wanted to work with the theme of mortality and the universality of it: how we are all living under the ticking clock. In our research we found Chronophobia, the clinical term for a fear of time. This informed all choices from script, casting, locations and design. The dramatic film techniques and imagery, drawn from pop thriller and horror cinema, make the pill easier to digest, while emphasising the mounting pressure building at the back of our heads. They say the key to contentment is to live in the present, but right now’s a pretty fucked up place to be."
Explaining how they came to choose the name Husky Loops, the band explained “it means rough loops: it stems from our fascination with repetition, playing loops from a rock perspective”. They combined various words, which they thought suited them best, landing on Husky Loops - a homage to their fresh, DIY take on rich, yet simultaneously raw riffs.
