EP Album Review: Hunny – Pain/ Ache/ Loving

Californian six-piece HUNNY have released their debut EP Pain/Ache/Loving. They made a name for themselves this year releasing their first single “Cry for Me” which was met with universal acclaim gaining more than 800,000 plays since its premiere and charting the Top “Most Popular Tracks” on Hype Machine.

HUNNY first began out as a solo effort from front man/lead guitarist Jason Yarger who brought the music to his long time collaborators Jake Goldstein on guitar and bassist Gregory Horne who helped cultivated the early sounds of the band. The project went on to include third guitarist Jacob Munk, keyboardist Kevin Grimmett and drummer Joey Anderson who rounded out the outfit and established the unique blend of pop & 80’s post punk.

The band quickly gained huge amounts of praise from fans that then translated into Zane Lowe and BEATS 1 jumping on board, as well as other popular blogs such as Pigeons & Planes, The Line of Best Fit, The Music Ninja, Wild Honey Pie and The Burning Ear.

They worked with Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Trash Talk) where the band channels a wide array of influences, blending post-punk tendencies. The result is a lovelorn themed EP that paints a colorful picture of heartbreak and frustration through angst driven anthems like their new single “Natalie.”

They are currently on tour, with a two month long stint across the US on tour supporting The Neighbourhood and good friends, Bad Suns:
