The album was produced and mixed by Stuart Dixon. Husky Tones – Who Will Turn To Now? Victoria Bourne - vocals and drums Chris Harper - guitar and backing vocals Rock, blues, punk and folk. These are the core elements of Husky Tones Who Will I Turn To Now? The album takes you on a journey with songs that scream and cry, and lush vocals drifting on a sea of heavy guitar riffs. Who Will I Turn To Now? combines songs of protest, despair and love, tales of the benefits system, climate of cuts, the disintegration of capitalism. As well as reference to modern day politics, it has historical roots with a ballad Island Of Barbed Wire . The song is about Victoria’s great uncle who was interned on the Isle of Man as a German Prisoner of war just for being a German living in the UK when war broke out. Married to an English woman the song tells their story. An expression of powerlessness in the face of terrifyingly sad global events, which is as relevant today as it was during WW1. Having spent 2016 building a reputation for intense live shows at places such as London’s 100 Club and Blues Kitchen, Brighton’s Latest Bar and national UK festivals their modern and varied sound has won them many friends and fans around the country including having been played on BBC Radio 2 by Paul Jones. 1. Round the Wrekin A midlands colloquialism meaning the long way round perfectly describes Victoria and Chris’s musical journey together. 2. Momentum A simple protest song with an optimistic edge. 3. Jungle Blues A song of empathy for those caught up in the recent refugee crisis. 4. One Good Reason Sometimes burying your head in the sand becomes a very attractive proposition, but it’s just no good for you. 5. The Island of Barbed Wire During World War I many German’s who were residing in the UK were rounded up and interned on the Isle of Man which became known as the Island of Barbed Wire. Ludwig Dollitz Victoria’s great uncle, was one such person. This song is from the point of view of his English wife Caroline who used to travel for days to visit him and would try to smuggle food in her skirt hem for her husband. An expression of powerlessness in the face of terrifyingly sad global events. 6. I Worry about Nothing An existentialist pop song detailing what Bertrand Russell described as the “terror of cosmic loneliness”. 7. Who Will I Turn to Now? This song is about personal experience of the UK’s benefits system, when you’re out of work, how you’re treated nowadays, how you can be made to feel invisible, how even with a loving family you can still be driven to despair and to consider the darkest of thoughts. 8. These Hips Were Made for You This is just a love song. 9. Put your arms around someone you love A song about fear for the near future when someone close to you is very ill. 10. World’s End Lane There is an alleyway in Bristol called World’s End Lane and this phrase seemed to us to perfectly encapsulate our anger and frustration at the direction of world politics, sometimes it seems that we are all walking down World’s End Lane.
