The band was formed by Marko Nyberg who began composing under the name in 2002, wanting to create cinematic music influenced by film, photography and painting. When recording the debut album Country Falls Nyberg recorded around 20 musicians and singers for use on the album—each of them good friends of Marko's and all Helsinki-based. As Marko Nyberg puts it himself:
"Every track is designed to be a warm breeze to counter the chill of daily life, whether you live in cold climes or not. All moments from life become part of the music. Husky Rescue reflects our background in Helsinki where the winter nights are so cold and long while the summer is hot and short, but oh so sweet. It's melancholic music but there is always hope. Husky Rescue's music is like the first snow on the ground when you can still see the green grass through the snow. It's like spring's sunbeam after the long, dark, sunless winter time."
Husky Rescue also exists as a five-member live band composed of Marko Nyberg (bass guitar), Reeta-Leena Korhola (vocals), Ville Riippa (keyboard), Anssi Sopanen (drums) and Miika Colliander (guitar). Country Falls was released worldwide on Catskills Records in October 2004 and in spring of 2005 on Minty Fresh Records in the US.
Fans of the group include English journalist James Delingpole who has desribed their secret as lying in an "ingenious combination of Finnish chilliness and melancholy (especially Reeta-Leena Korhola's frail, beautiful vocals, a curious mix of tenderness and icy distance, which lend every song the vague feel of a deeply sad and sinister children's story set in a cruel frosty land) with some of the jauntiest, catchiest most perfect synth pop melodies you're likely to hear"
