You’d be mistaken for thinking these long haired rockers from Hertfordshire are just another over hyped band looking to gain some fans in an oversaturated indie market. The force of The Hunna 100 album is astonishing. There seems to be a rush surrounding the band that is continually growing in momentum and after selling out virtually every single venue on their past few tours, appears to be accelerating at an astounding rate.

The album itself is soaked in this adrenaline filled rush. A raucous explosion of guitar and drums accompanied by startling vocals from lead singer Ryan Potter whose voice calls to a generation of indie rock disciples.

First released bolder tracks such as ‘Bonfire’ and ‘We Could Be’ paved the way for an album of intense, fresh rock. Though there are softer elements of The Hunna’s sound that are explored in tracks such as ‘She’s Casual’ or ‘Sycamore Tree’.

‘Bonfire’ begins with these subtle notes, its short verses allowing you to focus on its immense chorus. The bitter rasp of the lyrics almost enable you to feel the tainted resentment of the singer and from here on in the album is a racing ode to complicated relationships and the acrimonious experiences of youth.

‘We Could Be’ perfectly captures this spirit of youthful rebellion, with a cryptic note to someone who didn’t believe in the band’s early sound- “I’ll bet that you wished you’d have bothered when this band gets discovered”. This only adds to the feeling of youthful drama and fiery attitude of the album.

This momentous energy is once again captured in, by far one of the best tracks of the album, ‘Brother’. This anthemic song stirs something of struggle and pain with a strong riff and an addictive chorus. The song writing on this track shows potential for even fiercer records in the future.

This album delivers everything you have come to love from youthful indie rockers and its explosiveness is one that continuously rides on the sound of indie restlessness.
