“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
‘All Dressed Up’ is the new single from North London’s HUNCK, irreverently exploring the expectation and disappointment that we all go through in trying to find ‘the one’. With dry sarcasm and a generous helping of self depricating humour, let HUNCK serenade you with the sound of being ‘stood up’.
Sometimes universal truths are mundane and disappointing. In this day and age algorithmic dating apps can determine the course of a person’s love life, chance encounters with a prospective lover at a naff night club could swell in to whirlwind of romance or maybe that ad you put in The Guardian Soulmates finds you the hummus spreading partner you’ve always seen yourself settling down with in that quirky terraced house in Stoke Newington you will never be able to afford. Dreams, you’re allowed them, but sometimes that’s all they ever are.
HUNCK play a London headline show in August, with support from Lupo and Physic Markers, followed by an appearance at this year’s Southsea Fest.
16 AUGUST – The Lexington, London – TICKETS
1 OCTOBER – Southsea Fest, Portsmouth – TICKETS
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.
