about

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.

Track Name: Round The Wrekin
Round the Wrekin

Here, here we are
Long time coming
Here, here we are
Long time coming

Don’t know where we’re from
Was oh so long ago
Been round the Wrekin
Now is all we know

Been round the Wrekin, been round the Wrekin
Been round the Wrekin, to where we’re at
So here we are
Here we are

Got it on, making music
Oh music! so much music
We never walked, always a sprint
All around the Wrekin left our curved imprint
So here we are
Here we are

Been round the Wrekin, been round the Wrekin
Been round the Wrekin, to where we’re at
And here we are
Here we are

Dancing ears and walking feet
Watch the right two tango to the right beat
Dancing ears and walking feet
Watch the right two tango to the right beat

So here we are
Here we are

Been round the Wrekin, been round the Wrekin
Been round the Wrekin, to where we’re at
Been round the Wrekin, been round the Wrekin
Been round the Wrekin, to where we’re at
So here we are
Here we are
Track Name: Momentum
Momentum


I can hear several thousand feet
Marching from the cold into the heat
The colourless, heartless, spineless one per cent
Will see their riches were not heaven sent

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
I think it’s called hope
I think it’s called hope

All colours but blue cut from our lives
Societal surgery with ideological knives
So many seeing red, shouting and seething
But I can feel a change from no hope to believing

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
I think it’s called hope
I think it’s called hope

Listen out for those who are losing their voice
They’re being taken to a future not of their choice
Every generation must fight the same fight
I can feel that mine is just about to take flight

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
I think it’s called hope
I think it’s called hope
Track Name: Jungle Blues
Jungle Blues



Well all right, all right, I guess I’ll be going home
Well alright, alright, your true colours have been shown

Well all right, now I understand
There’s been some kind of sleight of hand
Your arms are open, welcoming and wide
That is until someone wants to come inside

I get the feeling I’m not welcome here
Makeshift houses and gas that brings a tear
I was hoping for a better life
Instead I’m being attacked from every side

All right, all right, I guess I’ll be going home
All right, all right, your true colours have been shown

Well now that’s not so easy for me
’Cause there’s foreign fire raining on my family
Last time I saw my home it was burning down
All I could look forward to was being ash on the ground

So I ran and I ran
Yes I ran and I ran

All right, all right, I guess I’ll be going home
All right, all right, your true colours have been shown

Well all right, all right, your true colours have been shown
Track Name: One Good Reason
One Good Reason



Did you hear those bells?
They were calling time
On everything you see
Your life and mine

Give me one good reason not to just stay at home
Besides from the side effects of always being alone

Did you hear those bells?
They were calling time
On everything we’ve found
And all we’ve yet to find

Give me one good reason not to just stay at home
Besides from the side effects of always being alone

Did you hear those bells?
They were calling time
On tiny mankind
With our tiny little minds

Give me one good reason not to just stay at home
Besides from the side effects of always being alone

Give me one good reason not to just stay at home!
Track Name: Island Of Barbed Wire
The Island of Barbed Wire


Stone paths on a narrow road
Cold wind circles around you
A remote farm and a holiday camp
On the island of barbed wire

Men who once called the island their home
Now interned for no crime
But being born in a different place
Their talents now go to waste

A three day journey
To bring you food
Hidden in the hem of my dress
Prison guards fooled

I’m so tired
Of being without you
Barbed wire all around my heart
And I’m thinking
Of you in a place called Knockaloe

No law protected our family
Our lives soon divided
Everything taken from us
By the island of barbed wire

The mobilisation
Of new emotions
Spreading fear and scaremongering
In a bloody and sacred crusade

All your freedoms were soon removed
You’re handed boredom instead
Bone sculptures you’ve made for me
But I see your heart is broken

I’m so tired
Of being without you
Barbed wire all around my heart
And I’m thinking
Of you still in Knockaloe
Track Name: I Worry About Nothing
I Worry about Nothing


I worry about nothing
I said I worry about nothing

The nothing after this something keeps me awake
So I’ve gotta make this something good
Yeah, I gotta make this something good

Don’t ask me about dark things
What follows the never ending sky
Sleepless, thinking what the long night brings
I’m here now overcoming the why

I worry about nothing
I said I worry about nothing

Dark things
Happy things
Great things
Shit things
Yeah, I gotta make this something good

The nothing after this something keeps me awake
So I’ve gotta make this something good
Yeah, I gotta make this something good

Dark things
Happy things
Great things
Shit things
Yeah, I gotta make this something good

I worry about nothing
I said I worry about nothing

I worry about nothing
I said I worry about nothing
Track Name: Who Will I Turn To Now?
Who Will I Turn to Now?

Another door slams in my face
My life stripped bare of light
Living out of this suitcase
Whose floor will host me tonight?

No acceptance, pure exclusion
Worthlessness, complete occlusion

Patronised, a figure of mirth
Only I can save myself
A life’s work now irrelevant
A burden to my health

As soon as you leave a normal way to be
Your friends disown and the state disavows
Who will I turn to now?

After years of giving
I stepped out of your club
Alive but not living
Can it really be my time is up?

Slipping towards the saddest of thoughts
To say to my loved ones
“I’m sorry, so sorry to have left you…
…but I’m glad that I've gone”

As soon as you leave a normal way to be
Your friends disown and the state disavows
Who will I turn to now?

No more fare thee well
Burdens one and all
Joined in isolation
Together we fall

As soon as you leave a normal way to be
Your friends disown and the state disavows
Who will I turn to now?
Track Name: These Hips Were Made For You
These Hips Were Made for You

I don’t believe that you were made to be with anybody other than me
Every piece of you and every piece of me fit together oh so perfectly
One thing that I know to be true, these hips were made for you!

Remember the time when drowning in wine we laughed and loved till the sun came up
Finding no doubt that we fit inside and out from a single hug to a complete envelop
One thing that I know to be true, these hips were made for you!

And now that we’re together certainly for ever I’m saying goodbye to feeling all alone
I’m no longer blue ’cause I’m in a two and you’ll see just how much we have grown
One thing that I know to be true…oh
One thing that is certainly true…yeah
One thing that I know to be true, these hips were made for you!
Track Name: Put Your Arms Around Someone You Love
Put Your Arms around Someone You Love

If I hold, you I’ll want to say ‘I love you’
If I say ‘I love you’, I know I’ll cry
If I cry, it’ll show just how scared I am too
Scared to find myself saying goodbye

My broken heart would break your heart

Today is of course fine
Fine but I’m scared for tomorrow
Tomorrow we could cross a line
A line past which I can’t follow

My broken heart would break your heart

I need to be calm for now
I need to be calm for you

My broken heart would break your heart
My broken heart would break your heart
Track Name: Worlds End Lane
World’s End Lane

Lying, listening
To the beautiful rain
Come walk with me
Down World’s End Lane

Let me explain

Oh I feel, I feel a rage
Growing inside me
Here it comes
Oh here it comes

I still have hope
And comfort when you say
Thinking when we’re gone
Nature will find a way

Let me explain

Oh I feel, I feel a rage
Growing inside me
Here it comes
Oh here it comes
