Australia’s Husky will be releasing their sophomore album Ruckers Hill on June 2 via Nevado Music.

The band have already shared the title-track from the album which you can listen to here. Consequence of Sound said “the song itself fittingly opens with a strong sense of nostalgia, evoked by sobering harmonies and light guitar strums. Halfway through, though, the track is offset by a rush of dynamic drums, which effectively transform the whole affair into an upbeat celebration of bygone memories.”

Previous to that Husky revealed the album tracks “I’m Not Coming Back” which USA Today said, “blossoms into a sunny pop tune perfect for a summer road trip mix” as well as “Saint Joan” which  Entertainment Weekly called  a” top-notch indie folk-  think an upbeat hybrid of the Shins and Father John Misty and  Consequence of Sound said, “recaptures some of (summer’s) feel-good vibes, courtesy of extra-jangly guitars and waves of ever-warm harmonies.  Underneath all the aural sunshine, though, is a profound meditation on romance and learning to let go.”
