After releasing their now-hit first single ‘Bonfire’ last October, THE HUNNA are emerging as the British rock band to watch. This year, the four-piece band performed at Reading & Leeds Festival on the prestigious BBC Introducing Stage – filled with the kind of indie energy you’d expect from a band that are tipped to be the next big thing.
They’ve got a solid fanbase too, who for the last few weeks have no doubt been listening to the band’s debut album ‘100’. The sixteen-track record recently entered the UK Indie Chart at #3, whilst reaching #13 on the Official UK Album Chart.
AC: How would you describe your lives right now in one word?
THE HUNNA: Turnt.
What inspired the album title ‘100’?
The title links in with our name, we believe in giving one-hundred percent in everything that we do, staying true to ourselves and want to express that to our fans so it was natural to have ‘100’ as the title.
Which artists would you say influence your work?
In general we all have a big Kings Of Leon influence but I would say our influences range from many different genres and artists from Led Zeppelin to Drake.
What are your standalone favourite tracks on the album?
At the moment: ‘Bad For You’, ‘Alive’, ‘Piece by Piece’, ‘Never Enough’.
Why should people – who aren’t already fans – go and take a listen to ‘100’?
We feel like the music industry is missing that raw energy and euphoric feeling that was so prominent with many bands that we grew up listening to back in the day. If you wanna feel that feeling again – buy this album.
As a band, where do you aim to be in five years time?
To be the biggest band in the world, selling out stadiums arenas. Hunna-world domination!
