Reviewed: The Hunna – 100

The Hunna are set for big things. Having already gained the attention of big guns in the music industry such as 4Music, Kerrang! and their feature as BBC Radio 1’s New Band of the Week back in May – oh and the fact they’ve amassed a huge 3.1 million combined streams on Spotify – it comes as no surprise that they’re selling out gigs across the country with their fantastic live show which they already have a reputation for.

Their debut album 100 is one of those records that cannot be overlooked. The immediate pull you receive from the get-go as it kicks off with single Bonfire is hard to resist. It’s a catchy number that’ll have you wanting to hear more, and, by the way, the rest of the album does not disappoint.

From the catchy hooks of She’s Casual, You and Me and Piece By Piece, to laid-back emotional filled corkers such as Sycamore Tree and Brother – it’s a 16-track album that’ll be the anthem to your late summer.

You’ll be trying to fight the urge of wanting to sing along with vocalist, Ryan, even if you’re on public transport, but you might as well just give in to the struggle. It’s the type of music you want to see live, and luckily, they head out on tour in September which kicks off at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms.

The album rounds up with Coming Home, Be Young and the energetic Rock My Way. It’s been a very long time since I’ve enjoyed a band in this genre of music, and that’s saying a lot!
