Husbands: “Manhorse”

Posted by on Feb 26, 2020

In light of their markedly spousal name, some of the strongest offerings from OKC-Seattle duo Husbands have come from separation. Just look at their expansive track record of singles going back to 2013, culminating in three EPs, two Christmas albums, and most recently their sophomore (non-yuletide) full-length, which was largely written while bandmates Wil Norton and Danny Davis were living in different cities.

The baker’s dozen on mid-January’s After the Gold Rush Party¬†were pan-mined and smelted down from about seventy rough originals, sifting through grainy tropicalia, vintage no wave, bedroom pop, garage, and more, all the while redefining what it means to be “punk rock” as still-maturing adults in life’s beach. You can catch Husbands tomorrow night at Cheer Up Charlie’s, so get the pre-game started with the duo’s own stab at interspecies husbandry,¬†“Manhorse”!
