This hotly-tipped three piece currently on tour with Texan indie rockers, Spoon, are a force to be reckoned with

London-based Italian art-rock trio have shared the video for their totally and utterly brand new track ‘Fading Out’ – and you can watch it in all its glory here.

Let’s get something straight from the off. Despite a band name that suggests some kind of demented breakfast cereal for heavy smokers, the trio are in fact a somewhat angular and spiky proposition that has seen then win over a whole new set of fans thanks to support slots with big names such as The Kills, Sunflower Bean, Yak, Estrons and the mighty Placebo.

And as for that video, what we have is an intriguing short film that sits somewhere between the crowd bothering narrative of The Verve’s ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ and that episode of The Inbetweeners where the swotty Will has an adverse reaction after inadvertently consuming illicit substances. All in all, it certainly merits your attention.

Their music is characterised by some muscular and funky basslines aimed squarely at the feet while the guitars ping around like a pinball inside of a very hungover head. And pretty seductive it all is, too.

Meanwhile, you can check Husky Loops out for yourself this week. The band will be adding to their swelling fanbase thanks to a somewhat prestigious support slot with none other than Texan indie rockers Spoon.
