Fans piled in as alt rockers The Hunna performed to a sold out show at O2 Academy Brixton. In attendance were the bands go to and in demand photographer Haris Nukem along with rock quartet YONAKA who were seen to be enjoying the support from Retro Video Club and Barns Courtney leaving everyone suitably riled and ready for a show.
Strolling on stage to We Could Be, it was a sure-fire move to get listeners shuffling and continue to rock as Fever and Still Got Blood tore through the speakers and into the crowd. Having sold out Brixton for the third time, the bands performance is undeniably slick and bursting with belters such as Babe Can I Call which caused the venue to erupt. But it’s Rock My Way and Y.D.W.I.W.M that prove the bands ability to add some grit to an otherwise polished set list.
Last year the band announced that they were taking legal action against a few people within their camp, presumably their record label High Time which meant having to postpone the latter end of their 2018 tour.
Lead singer Ryan Potter took no time at all to let out a few jibes on stage and their request for audience participation throughout Dare seemed as cathartic for them as it was the crowd as everyone took the opportunity to shout the lyrics back before shaking fervently.
Announcing their new song, I Get High To Forget from their upcoming album again solidified the bands ability to craft a catchy chorus that will no doubt do well after repeat listens.
But it was the opening few notes to She’s Casual that resulted in the audience to steal the verse from Potter’s mouth and return it back twice as loud. It may have a rocky start to the year for The Hunna but judging on the nights performance, their devoted fans will no doubt carry them to a safe and stable career ahead.
