Give It a Listen: Still Got Blood – The Hunna

Latest posts by Charlotte Maxwell (see all)

The Hunna, the rising young four-piece hailing from London, have unveiled the video to their brand new track ‘Still Got Blood’. In the video, faithful fans and newcomers to the band’s unique sound can get a glimpse into the band’s frenetic ride to the top since they formed in October 2015.

Already shaping up to become an indie anthem, ‘Still Got Blood’ captures the group’s struggle to balance personal relationships with the demands of performing, touring and creating music in the 21st Century. Including genuine footage of the band, the video shows the boys as they are on the road, in the studio and in the company of their fans.

US industry bible Billboard premiered the track last week, and already the group have sold out their show at New York’s Mercury Lounge this month.

Speaking with Billboard, lead singer Ryan Potter said, ‘It’s real from personal experiences. It’s tough… There is always gonna be band stuff. It’s about our first experiences of being part of this world and how it can change perceptions and realising and dealing with that. It’s raw and powerful, but still fits into our sound with big guitars, pounding drums and anthemic vocals.’

The group first appeared on the scene in October last year with debut single ‘Bonfire’ / ‘She’s Casual’. The Hunna made a name for themselves in short time as they quickly sold out their first shows as headline acts – three nights at London’s Boston Music Rooms in March. This was quickly followed by a sold-out tour of the UK and Europe this spring tour.
