The Hunna Bring In ‘Summer’ For Australia

For a band who’s just ticked over their two year anniversary, toured with The 1975 and released their debut album to #13 on the UK charts, The Hunna sure are humble. If you’re unaware of the Hertfordshire four-piece, there is really no better time to get into them—they’re one of the buzziest acts going around at the moment and, with their latest single, and an Australian tour on the cards, no doubt you’ll be hearing much more about this group.

Summer is the latest cut from their debut long-player, ‘100’. The Hunna cite a few influences from Queen to Kings of Leon, but it’s best to drop those expectations and go into their tunes with an open mind and enough room to head bang just a little. Prepare those pipes of yours, too, because if The Hunna know how to do one thing great, it’s make an incredible singalong moment in all their songs. Though Warped Festival may be calling it a day, it’s bands like The Hunna who will keep that flame alive.

The video, directed by Hamish Kay, uses that classic Tarantino directorial touch by booking ending the video with the ending scene—filling the middle with the events that lead up to it. It’s an intriguing use of film and the ending is, still, truly surprising. The video and its audio pair so incredibly well and no doubt you’ll be seeing it on tele.

As well as touring with The 1975, The Hunna have also shared national stages with Jimmy Eat World, and The Shelters and have performed at such huge hometown festivals such as Reading and Leeds Festival and Community Festival. Name dropping like this accounts for a very impressive resume—meaning The Hunna are only on the up-and-up.

Now is literally the best time to become a fan of The Hunna as they’ll be playing their first shows in Australia early next year. Hitting all capital cities for a whirlwind couple of dates, The Hunna will be pulling out all the stops for their live to impress their diehard Australian fan base. All shows will be joined by label mates, Coasts.

The band’s latest, and greatest, single, Summer, is streaming below along with all the touring and ticketing information for their January Australian tour.
