WORDS AND IMAGES JAMES WOOLLEN
Alternative Rockers The Hunna hit the road for the first time since 2019, and it was the turn of Sheffield’s iconic music Venue The Leadmill tonight. The tour is in support of their self-titled new album due out on October 28th,
Pretty much every venue on this tour has been sold out and tonight was no exception Hunna fans were out in force the queue outside the venue was one of the longest Ii have seen in a long while, the fans were buzzing and there was a palatable air of anticipation.
The Hunna hit the stage around 9 pm and the whole of The Leadmill erupted, but ha hoo noooo, there is no sound, apparently, the deck had blown a fuse, and only the drums were audible. So the crowd sang songs for around ten minutes keeping the atmosphere alive, and all was well. it was pretty amazing, to be honest
20 minutes later the band came back on stage, and opened the evening’s entertainment with the song “The Storm” the Hunna are a unique hybrid of punky/garage surf indie rock and they do it very well indeed, they also know how to work a crowd Potter and Dorney, both moved around the stage like caged tigers which seemed to get the crowd even more worked up.
“Trash” and “Fugazi”, follow the latter having a slightly different feel to the previous two with more musical layers which really showcased all the band’s musical chops. By now the band and the audience were having the time of their lives
Ryan Potter – Singer/Guitar
Danial Dorney – Guitar/Lead
Jack Metcalfe – Drums
Jünate Angin – Guitar
Hunna played an amazing 18-song set of mostly new material from there yet to be released album, with the classic song “Bonfire” proving to be a real fan favourite singalong track.
I thought the Hunna were very good tonight and their band of loyal fans seem to love every minute of it, and this showing I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to check out the Hunna live as soon as possible, great songs, kick arse live what’s not to love
