Husky Loops
Rock/Alternative

London-based trio ​Husky Loops​ are the latest signee to super-producer Danger Mouse’s record label ​30th Century Records​ and their infectious new single, ​”Everytime I Run” is featured on the massive FIFA 19 Soundtrack. This track is taken from their latest four-song EP,​ ​Spool, ​and follows the release of the music video for “20 Blanks”.

Signing to 30t​h​ Century Records is confirmation of Husky Loops musical abilities. It’s the perfect home for the band, a place where their musical vision can be nurtured and their incredible potential fully realized. Formed in 2016 by Pier Danio Forni plus Tommaso Medica (bass) and Pietro Garrone (drums, samples) – all 20 something Italians from Bologna – they’ve already released two perfectly formed EPs (a self-titled debut, plus ‘EP2’), toured with David Byrne, Sunflower Bean, The Kills, Spoon and Placebo, and had legendary photographer Rankin and equally legendary ballet dancer Sergei Polunin turn their track ‘Tempo’ into a unique visual art project. It marks a perfect end to a Summer where the band have been playing to rapt crowds across Europe at various festivals including ​Reading​ &​Leeds​, Latitude, London Calling, Lowlands etc.

La Terza Classe
Folk/Pop

La Terza Classe is an italian folk band born in the streets of Naples, Italy, in October 2012.
In 2014 the band self-produced the first Ep “Ready to Sail” and toured several countries around Europe such as Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and France.

In May 2016 italian label “Ad Est dell’Equatore” published the album “Folkshake”, with the original song “Paulina”. The band toured the United States in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, featuring on american radio shows and having the honor of playing four times at “Music City Roots” in Nashville,TN, and twice at the famous “Bluegrass Underground”, TN.

In 2016 dear friend and former Grammy-winner Jim Lauderdale joined the band for their summer italian tour. On Oct. 2018 the band released the new Ep named “La Terza Classe” with all-original songs produced and published by italian label “Polosud Records”. Alongside it’s music activity, La Terza Classe has had the chance to feature in several italian national tv shows, participated on 2016’s edition of “Italy’s Got Talent” and has also produced the award-winning documentary “Flat Tyre – An American Music Dream”, in 2016.
