BACKSTAGE PASS: Hunny and the Frights, Live @ the Knitting Factory

backstage pass|FEATURES


Looking for a six-piece that you can indulge in? Check out SoCal-based Hunny and their “sadwave” sounds. Infamous among many for their unique style and humor, Jason Yarger, Jake Goldstein, Jacob Munk, Kevin Grimmett, Greg Horne, and Joey Anderson have been making a name for themselves after the release of their debut EP Pain/Ache/Loving last year. Regardless of tight space, Hunny put on a show to remember last Friday at the Knitting Factory in New York – “the windy city, the big pear” as the band joked. Starting off with some better-known songs like “Parking Lot” and “Cry for Me”, Hunny also treated the audience to both their new singles, “Vowels” and “Colder Parts” (which you can hear below), and threw in some even newer tracks that seem to still be in the making. If you’re down for a dance party with a band full of energy and passion, make sure to catch Hunny on their upcoming tour with Bleached and Beach Slang this fall!
