❉ Trans non-binary artist HUSK featuring on new Hip Hop Pop Bop ‘Throwback’!
Manchester based ’80s synth & leftfield pop lovechild HUSK has unveiled their latest collaboration, a new hip hop pop bop with non-binary drag queen ‘Rag Doll’, whose lyrical prowess will spark any millennial’s nostalgia of the 2000s. HUSK has adorned a soulful earworm vocal to the track Throwback, out for digital release on May 7th in partnership with Rich T Events, keen on celebrating local drag artists for innovation & artistry.
“When Rag Doll asked me if I could sing on the track, I heard it and couldn’t say ’no!’ Two non-binary artists getting together to make something fun and free in a tough world for trans musicians was a no brainer!”
HUSK is a trans non-binary artist, making infectious Gay Disco & ’80s Synthpop offering fun, catharsis and unapologetic vibes: “I’m here to take up space in a world that doesn’t want me to”. Akin to the likes of Prince, Pet Shop Boys, Years & Years, and Bright Light Bright Light, with strong disco influences too.
HUSK’s self-titled first EP was released in 2018 and included the modestly political Brother Kin and You Got It, the fun-loving banger that earned HUSK support from 6 Music’s Tom Robinson & BBC Radio Cymru’s Janice Long.
Since the starting of HUSK in 2018, they have had the honour of playing at Manchester International Festival 2019, Pride in Hull – where they performed to a crowd of 15,000 people – and a supporting slot with New York band The Blow.
Recently named Dean McCullough’s ‘One To Watch’ on Gaydio’s national breakfast show, HUSK puts Pride front and centre.
