Any fan of indie or alternative rock has heard of The Hunna. The band, lead by Ryan Potter, came out at 9 o'clock on the dot to be greeted by a buzzing festival crowd under a hot summer sky. Bare Root and JAWS, the two support acts, really did get the crowd pumped for the night!
It was the first time we've heard The Hunna live and they really did live up to their rep. The whole night could have been written on an America Pie soundtrack. The band covered their classics such as 'We Could Be', 'Fever', 'Babe, Can I Call?', 'Flickin' Your Hair' 'Dare' and 'Cover You', but it was obvious that they were going to end with their greatest hits. 'She's Casual' and 'Bonfire', released in their first album, '100', were met with exhilarating screams from the fans who almost drowned out the sound from the speakers, rounding up the night with a bang.
The whole night was filled with skinny jeans, head-banging classics and insane lighting. Despite the amount of problems in the current world, everyone at the Virgin Money Unity Arena was hyped up and living the night to it's full potential; a great sight to see.
The Hunna's third album, 'I'd rather die than let you in', is set to be released on the 2nd of October and we can't wait to hear what they've been working on since splitting from their previous record label. We'll (hopefully) see the band again in April next year when they come back to play at the O2 in Newcaslte!
