There’s no doubt that The Hunna lives up to the expectations created by indie rockers. With 16 new songs on their debut album “100,” recent tour with Jimmy Eat World, and current tour with Night Riots and the Shelter, the Hunna is slowly beginning to raise their status. Not only did their new album hit #3 on the UK Indie Chart, #13 on the Official UK Album Chart, and peaked at #36 on the Heat Seekers Chart in the US, but their lead single “You and Me” made it to the U.S. alternative radio, Music Choice, and peaked at #28 in U.S. Alternative Songs. As they made their way from England in 2011 to the United States in 2016, The Hunna have worked hard to make themselves known.
Singer/guitarist Ryan Potter, lead guitarist Dan Dorney, bassist Jermaine Angin, and drummer Jack Metcalfe have worked with producer Tim Larcombe, also producer for Halsey and Lana Del Rey, to record their album. When the four members met, they decided to name their band The Hunna after the popularly used slang word “hunna.” Not only is it relatable for their youthful audience, but it reflects the 100% they put in their music and career. From the very first song on their album, you’re hooked. Whether you’re only into lyrics or only into the beat of the music, The Hunna fills to meet both of those expectations. This indie rock band surrounds their songs with a mixture of a laid-back yet rocker style. If you’re the type of person to ignore lyrics, there’s no fault in still jamming out with everyone else. Their sound is so addicting that your self control will vanish and next thing you know you’re yelling with all your heart to their songs. Never Enough is one of those songs. The first verse starts off calm, talking about someone who makes their presentation known. The singer is nothing but infatuated with this special someone. Their chorus repeats “I keep falling in love” and “it’s never enough” multiple times. At first it’s sung in a calm speaking tone, but as the song continues, their passion strengthens. They insinuate that that person’s appearance makes a grand statement, and of course they can’t help but chase after them. In their second verse, their sound becomes more energetic. The lyrics become more sexual, but affectionate at the same time. The singer can’t get enough of what their person of interest provides, and because of that, they’ve solved all problems. In the bridge, everything begins to slowly calm down: the drums, the guitar, the singing. The end of the song includes a repetition of their choruses, escalating to a hard rocker vibe, and eventually calming down to a passionate fade away. After that, all you’re left with is a beating heart. Now imagine feeling that 15 more times.
