“Slow, sad guitars recall the more touching moments of Mazzy Star, and its difficult not to be drawn in by the yearning lyrics.” NME
“Hunck have found a way to mix George Harrison, Tame Impala and Elephant Stone… a languishing tune with a guitar part that has written earworm all over it.” HERE COMES THE FLOOD
“Chugging along in a surf-rock funk, it warps and buckles the old format, delivering a punch that’s hard to define. A bit of a banger really.” SHINY SHINY NEW
London based band HUNCK have announced the release of their debut EP on 29 January 2016. Comprised of 4 live favourites the band have been performing this year, the self-titled EP also features new track ‘Never Had a Dream’.
Today the band have shared the new video for ‘Never Had A Dream’, filmed in a gloomy, rainy London winter night
The band start a short UK tour this week:
28 January – The Old Fire Station – Bournemouth, UK
29 January – Arden Road Social Club – Halifax, UK
30 January – Fred’s Ale House – Manchester, UK
03 February – The Waiting Room – London, UK
HUNCK were born out of the post-riot depths of Tottenham in 2013. Estranged childhood friends Frederik and Thomas reconnected after a series of heartbreaks, losses and unfortunate events to indulge and share their love in the gloomier sounds of long dead crooners such as Al Bowlly and Frank Sinatra.
Initially releasing the dream tinged cover of Frank’s “In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning”, they went on to release their cassette only debut single ‘Something Missing’. After a period languishing in the hiss of their broken hi-fis and the repetitive thud of darts against a local dart board, Frederik and Thomas recruited Kieron, a space cadet fresh off the plane from LA on drums, Alfred, a cyborg found in Southampton hospital after undergoing treatment to fix a broken neck on bass and Michael whom very little was known about on guitar.
