‘Pretty darn good!’ – Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music
‘The outsider Popstar we’ve all been waiting for’ – David Sue, M.E.N.
Unadulterated Proper Electropop, unfettered synth melodies and a curious soulful tone for audio gender f**kery. Husk, the Transgender Electropop Maker, is like a rough & ready Prince with a rudimentary approach.
With a voice that isn’t ‘traditional’, the narrative often animates an unapologetic life, love and sexuality of his transgender experience. From asserting how it feels to be ‘on the outside’ of a societal norm to a more vulnerable look at being exposed, especially when it comes to the physicality of relationships, and right round to something not too serious that expresses freedom found in losing the shackles of gender ideals!
Hailing from Manchester, UK, it’s in his genes to make music worth listening to! Husk’s sounds are all about the energy, the camaraderie of that moment, the release when the wall of synth descends, and the caustic drums give you itchy feet. Infectious stuck-in-your-head melodies are also an absolute must.
Akin to the likes of CHVRCHES, Christine & The Queens and early Madonna, you’ll find remnants of 80’s clapping snares and, of course, hooks that really get their claws in.
