London-based Hunck are celebrating their new EP with a London show.
Following the release of the self-titled five-track EP on 29 January 2016, the group play the Waiting Room in Stoke Newington on 3 February.
As well as four live favourites the band have been performing this year, the EP also features new track, ‘Never Had a Dream’.
“The song is a tribute to the moon, it’s about growing old and living with certain painful memories,” explain the band.
Formed in 2013 by estranged childhood friends Frederik and Thomas in post-riot Tottenham, the band’s first release was influenced by their shared love of dead crooners like Al Bowlly and Frank Sinatra. The dream-tinged cover of Sinatra’s gloomy ‘In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning’ was followed by the cassette-only debut EP ‘Something Missing’.
Rounded out by Kieron on drums, Alfred on bass, and guitarist Michael, Hunck have, in 2015, played at Green Man and Reading Festival as well as a few dates supporting The Polyphonic Spree.
