Melbourne-based band Husky, shares this charming video created by Wayne McCauslin, for ‘I’m Not Coming Back’, a timelessly pensive and far reaching track, lifted from their forthcoming second album ‘Ruckers Hill’ on via Nevado Music.
Husky Gawenda (lead vocals, guitar) explains: “I wrote this song not long after moving into a new house in Melbourne, in which I set up a small studio out the back. I discovered after a little while that I was directly beneath a flight path and at night, the planes would fly low over the courtyard outside the studio. Most nights, I’d sit outside, in the courtyard, and for a while watch the planes seemingly glide past, mechanical birds moving through the night stars.
I wrote I’m Not Coming Back one night when the stars were particularly illuminating and the airplanes seemed to be twinkling in their reflected light, gliding through the night, moving towards a new destination. The obvious sentiment of the song is the need to escape, to cut and run, to leave it all behind. But there is a back-story, only hinted at, some kind of hurt that is driving the need to go. That’s what interests me most about the song”.
