In Scene Report, musicians from all over the globe fill us in on what’s going on sonically in their hometowns. This week, Husky Gawenda of Husky lets us know what’s up in Melbourne, Australia. The folk band’s harmony-laden new single, I’m Not Coming Back, precedes the release of their recently-completed second LP.

Melbourne has been the music capital of Australia for a long time. It has a thriving scene of musicians, bands, songwriters and the best venues in the country.
