Husky Rescue Under the Radar


Helsinki's Husky Rescue definitely fell under the radar by playing for about 30 or so lucky folks on Saturday at the El Mocambo, despite some coverage in EYE this week.

A cross between James Bond spy music and Air, the fivesome celebrated tracks off their debut Country Falls.

As the band's bassist Marko Nyberg puts it himself: "Every track is designed to be a warm breeze to counter the chill of daily life, whether you live in cold climes or not. All moments from life become part of the music. Husky Rescue reflects our background in Helsinki where the winter nights are so cold and long while the summer is hot and short, but oh so sweet. Its melancholic music but there is always hope. Husky Rescue's music is like the first snow on the ground when you can still see the green grass through the snow. It's like springs sunbeam after the long dark sunless winter time."

Husky Rescue also exists as a live band comprised of Nyberg, vocalist Reeta-Leena Korhola, who has a Lisa Loeb vibe to her, Villee Riippa (keyboard), Anssi Sopanen (drums) and Miika Colliander (guitar). Country Falls was released worldwide on Catskills Records in October 2004 and in spring of 2005 on Minty Fresh Records in the U.S.
