THE HUNNA – SINGLE REVIEW

The Hunna – You & Me 
The Hunna - You & Me


Release Date: Out Now

These lads have crept up on me a little – a bit like a guy at a bus stop that you just didn’t see coming and is now standing a little too close for comfort – but there seems to be a buzz around The Hunna much like there was around Catfish & The Bottlemen a couple of years back. Similarly, this London based quartet are touring their skinny jean clad asses off on both sides of the Atlantic which is so encouraging in this age of internet superstardom. This new single, ‘You & Me’, is a bundle of energy, hope and enthusiasm channelling the spirit of early Razorlight, the Killers and, as predicted, Catfish & The Bottlemen. Sure, it is a little derivative at times and not the most ground breaking, melodically speaking, but this is a band that is still cutting its teeth and the live performances, relentless gigging and experience of playing with a variety of acts will only help these guys to perfect their craft. I’m going to assume these are guys are pretty good live as well, judging from the footage in the video. Seems like the buzz is justified so far…
