This event is all ages
Come take shade under the leaves of the Hunna Tree. With roots that bury themselves deep in the urgency of rock and a sound that's dappled with a carefree indie aesthetic, The Hunna want you to take a leaf out of their book, let go of your inhibitions and be young, be free, and be whoever the hell you want to be.
Making their debut in October of 2015 with their first single, "Bonfire," the UK fourpiece have already carved out handful of songs with a sonic bombast that has garnered millions of Spotify streams, 5+ million video
views and praise by the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens. The band sold out 3 nights at London's Boston Music Rooms and by the time their second single, 'We Could Be' was unleashed, The Hunna's music was making waves in the iTunes and Spotify charts on a global scale.
The Hunna are set to be the first band on your playlist, the one you listen to when you're driving around with the top down. Bleeding of a wistful nostalgia and teamed with an unremitting lust for life that is as infectious as it is relentless, The Hunna's unabashed sound has seen them play in front of sold out rooms across Europe on a headlining tour and will bring them to the States in Spring of 2016.
The Hunna began to take shape when Ryan (Vocals/Guitar), Dan (Lead Guitar) and Jermaine (Bass) met in college. After a couple of lineup changes, Jack arrived on drums and everything fell into place. A sucker for a good chorus, the boys like to work from the outside in when it comes to writing. "There are so many different processes to what we do, but often we'll start with a chorus, and then we'll funnel in from there," the band have noted about their writing and recording process. Working with esteemed producers Tim Larcombe (Halsey, Lana Del Rey) and Duncan Mills, the band are set to arrive with new single, "You and Me (Hunna Tree)," an anthemic call to arms for The Hunna army and a middle finger to those who just don't want to enlist. "It's about us as a band taking the negative things that people have said and sort of turning it around, " muses Ryan. "It's about the fans as well, it's for the Hunna family the people who have been there from the very beginning," he adds.
From the get go and in true Hunna fashion, the new track starts at 100%. Kicking off with a tenacious riff and accompanied by a soaring melody you better turn "You and Me (Hunna Tree)" all the way up to 11, otherwise you're gonna get left behind.
This five piece, who met while at university in Bristol, are proving to be a band who are relentlessly on the rise. A growing body of songs has been earning them huge amounts of praise amongst the music community & beyond. Their anthem track “Oceans", has millions of plays on their Spotify and selling over 100,000 copies on iTunes alone. A Rush of Blood, a lead track from their debut album, was premiered by Zane Lowe calling it “absolutely huge”.
Non stop touring in 2014 and 2015 included smash sets at Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza, as well as sold out shows in New York and London at prestigious venues such as The Bowery Rooms, KOKO and Bush Empire. Having been backed as ones to watch by the likes of iTunes, Spotify and BBC R1, They have been receiving a rapturous reception Stateside and are being hailed as the next “huge British band”. Coasts live shows have become a cult phenomena with 2016 set to host the band’s biggest live shows to date.
