It may seem out of place given it has officially ended today, but ‘Summer’, the latest single by indie rock quartet The Hunna, is far from an end to the band’s incredible rise to becoming one of modern indie’s elite.
It wasn’t long ago (May last year) that the Hertfordshire group were taking to the stage at Stoke-on-Trent’s intimate music venue, The Sugarmill. And in as little as over a year, the band have played at a number of huge festivals including Reading and Leeds, and were even one of the headlining acts at Dot to Dot Festival 2016, alongside established indie band The Temper Trap.
The new single doesn’t deviate much from their hit debut album, ‘100’. The opening riff has an almost Kings of Leon sound to it. The repeated strumming of one note on Dan Dorney’s lead makes for a real feel-good intro to the track, which resonates with the title of the track and its lyrics.
Frontman Ryan Potter laying on a bed of roses is the only fitting artwork for the single, seen as though it is a song about his fond memories of time spent with a girl he loves.
The whole pop-rock vibe around the track makes it an earworm for fans of the group, and even for those who have never heard a track from them before this one. People have already taken to Twitter in the hundreds to praise sing the song’s praises, with many saying they can’t stop listening to it on repeat.
In the wake of the new single, the group’s next gig has been announced for 13th January 2018 at O2 Academy, Brixton.
