Rock, blues, punk and folk. These are the core elements of Husky Tones Who Will I Turn To Now? The album takes you on a journey with songs that scream and cry, and lush vocals drifting on a sea of heavy guitar riffs. Who Will I Turn To Now? combines songs of protest, despair and love, tales of the benefits system, climate of cuts, the disintegration of capitalism. As well as reference to modern day politics, it has historical roots with a ballad Island Of Barbed Wire . The song is about Victoria’s great uncle who was interned on the Isle of Man as a German Prisoner of war just for being a German living in the UK when war broke out. Married to an English woman the song tells their story. An expression of powerlessness in the face of terrifyingly sad global events, which is as relevant today as it was during WW1.
Having spent 2016 building a reputation for intense live shows at places such as London’s 100 Club and Blues Kitchen, Brighton’s Latest Bar and national UK festivals their modern and varied sound has won them many friends and fans around the country including having been played on BBC Radio 2 by Paul Jones.
