Husky Rescue
‘We Shall Burn Bright’

Finland in the early winter is a country of clouds, mild snow, darkness and chilly winds. The days last just a few hours and any inkling of fun is hidden inside of firmly sealed up houses. It was in one of these small, sauna-like homes, with permanently glowing artificial light and a wagon of hot coffee, that Helsinki’s finest export, Husky Rescue, completed their third album. Due for release on January 25, Ship Of Light arrives two years after the sweetly cheerful Ghost Is Not Real, a sonic companion to the city’s lighter months.

Whereas Husky Rescue’s biggest hit ‘Nightless Night’ was an innocent feast of sunny northern nights, ‘We Shall Burn Bright’ is even more slinky. Kilos of stirring energy are all around as a choir sings and surprisingly raw electronics resound. The song begins with a stunning rhythm as layers of glockenspiel waft the listener into an enchanting multidimensional chorus dominated by the angelic singing and whispers of frontwoman Reeta-Leena Korhola. The resoluteness of the song is intensified by the addition of more instruments, including bass, woodwinds and more percussion, with twitchy, nervous drums. On this evidence, with Ship Of Light, Husky Rescue are sailing back into the harbour on a stronger wind, loud and refreshing with abundant amounts of positivity. MP3 after the jump.
