[Interview] HUNNY Talk Headlining Their First Tour, Being in Thrasher and the Anime Final Four

With a lineup that sounds like an early 2000s boy band, Jake, Jason, Joey and Kevin, better known as HUNNY, are taking on their first headlining tour after supporting runs with fellow Newbury Park, CA such as Bad Suns (check out our interview with Bad Suns here) and the Neighbourhood in recent years. Coming from such a talented town, HUNNY has large shoes to fill, and the energy they bring to a live setting is big enough to fill them. Talking with drummer Joey Anderson after the show, he mentioned that this tour has been spent “wearing lab coats,” so to speak, as they test the national waters as a headlining act.

Along with HUNNY on this run are Buffalo, NY-based Made Violent, who put on an equally impressive set, getting the crowd of unfamiliar faces moving, dancing and ready for more. If you’ve spent much time shopping at Vans stores, Made Violent may sound familiar as they are heavily featured in the retail chain’s in-house playlists.

Apart from their musical prowess, the guys of HUNNY have a deep appreciation for anime that has bound them together and inspired not only their sound but their process. Despite differing over the fourth member of their “Anime Final Four” brackets, both Jake and Jason have the “life-changing” anime FLCL as their ultimate champion. Part of the reason for this is because of a Japanese band called The Pillows that Jason says, “basically scores the whole show FLCL,” going as far as to call them “a Japanese Weezer.”

From anime to surreal moments to the indescribable top Google image result for “HUNNY” (Click this link with caution!), we had a great time talking to Jason and Jake before their first headlining set in Atlanta at the Masquerade’s Purgatory stage. Listen above or on the Bullet Music SoundCloud.

[Interview] Company of Thieves Remind us to Appreciate Little Nothings

Chicago natives Company of Thieves are less of a band and more of an attitude about life and music. In the words of frontwoman Genevieve Schatz, “Thieves give you a feelin’,” and after a three-year hiatus, the feeling is back.
